How can I update the Mac binaries of a TeX Live installation on a Ubuntu server?
The setup is the following:
- I have a headless Ubuntu 11.10 server running on which I have
installed TeX Live 2011. More specifically, I have installed the
x86_64-linux), Mac (
x86_64-darwin) and Windows (
- I can access the server via
sshfrom my local network.
- I want to update the Mac part of the distribution.
I can update the Linux binaries without hassle, as I am naturally able to execute the
tlmgr within the
x86_64-linux folder. If I connect to the server via
ssh and try to run
tlmgr from the
x86_64-darwin directory I get an error, of course, because it is built for the wrong architecture.
If I run “TeX Live Utility” from the MacTeX package (with paths accordingly set), the GUI shows me “Listing failed” and the log file reads

How can I get
tlmgr to work correctly?
