$ latex test.tex This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2013/dev)
restricted \write18 enabled.
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!
This problem recurs every few months, as mentioned here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=718364
. Deleting the old format used to fix it. Now it is broken for me more completely than before. So, yes, it is broken on F 17.
