That this happens *after* you have purged all tetex packages indicates
that there are some old format files lying around.

You should get a working system by calling as root
	fmtutil-sys --all

If this still not works, then you probably have still some old formats
lying around. Do you have locate installed? If yes, what does
	locate latex.fmt
	locate mf-nowin.base

One who asks you a question with the apparent motive of wanting to
hear your answer, but who cuts short your opening sentence by leaning
forward and saying 'and I'll tell you why I ask...' and then talking
solidly for the next hour.
