Hi TexLive Maintainers (Sebastian?),

I know, that the new TeXLive6 is not yet ready but want to let you know
of some unexpected difficulties I experience with the above mentioned
ISO image.

I used TeXLive 4 and 5 as a Live-System on Solaris quite successful, 
but can't get the new image to work properly.

The binaries are all in the correct subdirectory (bin/sparc-solaris2.7)
but there must be a serious error in some of the configuration files.


- "fmtutil --edit" results in 
  fmtutil: config file fmtutil.cnf not found

- kpsewhich --format="web2c files" fmtutil.cnf finds nothing

- kpsewhich article.sty finds nothing

I'm willing to do some testing but because I don't have direct access
to our CD-ROM-Server I can't switch CDs often.
