I second what Zdenek suggested. Changing the operating system/distro just 
because of that issue you encountered would be a real overkill. And installing 
TeXLive from a DVD (or netinstall) has another benefit: TeXLive package manager 
(tlmgr), which you don't get when installing from distro's repos.
