- Subject: latex problem 'Fatal format file error'
I have just installed cygwin on my new computer (Dell Precision
2-processor system). I have installed everything in exactly the same
manner as I did on my old computer. Everything worked as expected on my
old computer on which I had installed cygwin about 9 months ago.
When I tried running latex on my new computer, I seem to have a problem
with a file named "latex.fmt". The error message indicates a format file
error. I will list some of the messages that appear after I run. I would
appreciate any input on this matter.
This is pdfeTeXk, Version3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
%&-line parsing enabled.
