I ran into some problems with TeX and re-installed TeX Live. (I'm using Fedora 16 x86_64)

Now, when I try to run pdflatex, it says:

tcfmgr: config file `tcfmgr.map' (usually in $TEXMFMAIN/texconfig) not found.

fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found

I did texhash, texconfig rehash and I still have the same problem.

Actually, the two files tex complains that it can't find are in:

/usr/share/texmf/texconfig/tcfmgr.map

/usr/share/texlive/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf

I've no idea what I should do next.

What's the result of kpsewhich fmtutil.cnf? –  Martin Schröder Feb 13 '13 at 11:45

Thanks Martin.

It turned out that I've installed different versions of texlive, one from my yum repository, one from online texlive resource, which seemed to cause some conflicts.

When I first tried to fix the problem, I did "yum remove texlive", without realizing this is not enough -- I ended up removing all the package "yum search texlive" has listed and re-installed texlive from yum repository and it works now.
