TeX Live ISO Images
This directory contains the ISO image for the official TeX Live release; md5 and sha512 checksums are provided, and the sha checksum is GPG-signed. The generic names (texliveYYYY.iso and texlive.iso) are symlinks to the dated release .iso.
The TeX Live web pages http://tug.org/texlive/ have information on:
- other ways to acquire the distribution http://tug.org/texlive/acquire.html,
- quick installation http://tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html,
- documentation http://tug.org/texlive/doc.html,
- reporting bugs and known issues http://tug.org/texlive/bugs.html,
Instead of dealing with this giant image, for typical use we recommend the small installer package(s) http://tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html available from CTAN https://ctan.org/).
If you have problems with installation or running TeX after installation, please check your environment variables: settings, including your PATH, that end up referencing previously-installed TeX systems (TeX Live or otherwise), can cause trouble, especially on Windows.

texlive – A comprehensive distribution of TeX and friends
A comprehensive TeX system that you can install on your hard disk. It includes support for most Unix system architectures, including GNU/Linux, and for Windows. The MacTeX distribution is developed as part of the TeX Live effort, and has similar properties, but is distributed separately.
The TeX, PDFε-TeX, XeTeX and LuaTeX engines are provided in the distribution, with several different running formats each; a wide range of support programs and macro packages is also included.
Beware: the download is large (nearly 3 Gbytes); it comes in the form of an ISO image for a DVD.
