tetex-bin fails installation
On my last upgrade, tetex-bin failed to install. I received the
following in the debconf window:
The generation of some of the format files needed to run TeX, LaTeX etc.
has failed. You will not be able to run these programs until this is fixed.
The most frequent cause for such a failure is that a new version of
tetex-bin changed configuration files, but you did not accept the
maintainers' version of a file you manually changed.
If you report this as a bug, please include the output of fmtutil,
stored in /tmp/tetex.postinst.XXoQhR1x
That file is empty.
In the standard terminal I received:
Creating config file /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf with new version
Generating /var/lib/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf ... done
Regenerating /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg ... done
Running initex. This may take some time. ...
fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.
I have removed and purged all the tetex packages (tetex-base,
tetex-bin, tetex-extra), but I'm still unable to install tetex-bin. This
has not happened on any other debian box.
Any insight would be appreciated.
