I installed texlive.2007 (from the tug.org iso), having previously ran
pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
kpathsea version 3.5.4
for some time.
Now I execute: latex my.simple.file
and eventually it reports:
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!
I have googled and googled and googled. I have tried:
sudo fmtutil-sys --all
sudo fmtutil --all
to no avail
fmtutil --byfmt latex
Am I best to start over again ? I have spent hours and hours on this.
I am worried that the suggestions on google, may not refer to my
version and setup. (I am quite content with the defaults.)
