LaTeX problem after update


A few days ago there was a huge TexLive update. Since I've installed the updates I get following error, when running pdfLatex:

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdflatex.fmt
So I guess it can't find pdflatex.fmt, but I don't know what to do against it. Does anybody know how to fix it?

Re: LaTeX problem after update

Do you have Texlive 2009 installed? In that case you have to reinstall Texlive. It has something to do with the packages in F11 and F12. In F13 you can update as normal. It is explained here, in comment 125:https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=488651

If you're running Texlive 2007, then I don't know, but maybe it's a similar problem.

Thanks for your quick reply. Yes, I've got Texlive 2009 installed. So I guess I have to install it new and wait then for the next update until Fedora13.
Thanks again for your help!
