# How can I get TeXLive 2014 on Debian wheezy (stable)? [duplicate]

Debian wheezy's (stable) repositories only have TeX Live 2012 -- what is best practice for getting TeX Live 2014?

You have three options. Each option have both advantages and drawbacks, so the "best practice" depend upon your preferences.

1. `apt-get dist-upgrade` to Debian testing.

• Advantage: Up-to-date TeX Live and OS. Ideal for people who like to live on the edge but not enough crazy to updgrade to Sid.
• Disadvantage: You can break something. Not a good idea for a server.
• Advantage: Actual TeX Live with a very stable system.
• Installation is easy, but no as simple as `apt-get install texlive-full`
