Unfortunately, I cannot do it now... I did not copy it from /tmp/ to a
safer place so it was removed after a reboot. But I have looked
through it several times and I recall that all the formats supplied
with the base installation of texlive were built without any errors.
The only error message was about omega format which is not in the base
installation of texlive but was included in the teTeX distro.
I copied that message to the bug report. I am afraid this is the only
information that I can provide by now, I am sorry.

Another thing that can be useful is that the version of tetex I had
was from the stable distro (i.e. 2.0.2c-8).

This will not have much sense now because to get texlive working I had
to purge all the remainings of tetex. But again I remember that in
/etc/texmf/fmt.d there was a config file of teTeX that mentioned omega
format. When I purged remainings of all tetex-* packages manually
(dpkg --force-depends --purge) and installed texlive packages anew
everything went without any errors.

By the way, another question about omega.

In /usr/share/texmf-texlive there is a dir omega with the following
content (ls -lR):

Are these files needed at all? Maybe they were included by a mistake?
I have installed the following texlive packages:


I did not install texlive-omega. dpkg -S ebcdic.ocp says
texlive-base: /usr/share/texmf-texlive/omega/ocp/misc/ebcdic.ocp
