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 https://tug.org/texlive/ have information on:
- acquiring the distribution https://tug.org/texlive/acquire.html,
- quick installation https://tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html,
- documentation https://tug.org/texlive/doc.html,
- reporting bugs and known issues https://tug.org/texlive/bugs.html,
Instead of dealing with this giant image, for typical use we recommend the small installer package(s) as described at https://tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html.
If you have problems with installation or running TeX after installation, please check your environment variables: settings, including 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 MacOS, and for Windows. The MacTeX distribution is an unchanged TeX Live plus some Mac-specific software, but is distributed in a separate archive.
The TeX, PDF(e)TeX, XeTeX, LuaTeX, and other 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 from CTAN is large (several GB); it comes in the form of an ISO image, and is available from CTAN mirrors through the `Sources' link below.
Other ways to acquire TeX Live include network installation, tarballs, and mirroring.
