Just for info. I installed texlive a few days ago and biber didn't work
 because of biber/biblatex version mismatch. Something like (similar, I
don't have the exact error now):

Error: Found biblatex control file version 3.4, expected version 3.5.
        This means that your biber (2.6) and biblatex () versions are
        See compat matrix in biblatex or biber PDF documentation.

I had to download biber from http://slackware.schoepfer.info/slackbuild

So mirror.ctan.org's tarball was updated and the currently available
build from slackbuilds.org is broken because of it.
