It would be nice to have texlive, a huge program, in the repositories.  It is better than tetex.  However, its no big deal as its pretty easy to download texlive from the texlive site.

Thanks!

I found texlive 64 in untested and downloaded it.  Tried lyx and it didn't work (could not find texlive).  I then installed texlive using installpkg from root and it seemed to install, with errors.  Reconfigured lyx.  But lyx still wouldn't recognize texlive.  Texlive is normally in /usr/local but it is not there. Installpkg gave several errors (automake, mmake etc).  I expect that is the problem.

I will look into it further as time permits.
