I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 over-top of Ubuntu 9.04, preserving my /home partition, but aside from that partition, it was a fresh install. I installed the texlive package (2009-7) from Ubuntu's main repository.
Now, when I try to run latex or pdflatex on a
.tex file, I get the not so helpful error:
brian@thoralf:~/tmp$ pdflatex test.tex This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian) restricted \write18 enabled. ---! /home/brian/.texmf-var/web2c/pdftex/pdflatex.fmt doesn't match pdftex.pool (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
What can I do to fix this problem?
