If you do not have graphics.cfg then you need to supply an explicit driver
option to the graphics package but one has been part of texlive since
before it was called texlive.

in tl2015 (and possibly tl2016) what do you get returned for

kpsewhich graphics.cfg

If you have not got that file you can get it from


but how did you install texlive?
