The tfm file for cmr10 has been read and the relevant data is dumped in the format, and is not read again. You can see all the fonts that were read in your initex run. The tfm for all these are loaded into the format: \font\tenrm=cmr10 \font\preloaded=cmr9 \font\preloaded=cmr8 \font\sevenrm=cmr7 \font\preloaded=cmr6 \font\fiverm=cmr5 \font\teni=cmmi10 ...

Your test is not conclusive. Consider the file \nopagenumbers \font\ptm=ptmr8r \ptm a \bye and compile it with tex -recorder, so a .fls file will be created containing information about the loaded files; I only removed the first line that reports the working directory PWD <not shown> INPUT /usr/local/texlive/2014/texmf.cnf INPUT ...

The tex.fmt is created by \input plain \dump \endinput Thus it is the same as your plain.fmt. In the present implementation of TeX, the banner This is TeX, Version 3.14159265 ... is printed only when the TeX is nearly equal to the original TeX by Knuth. This is discriminated by the program name 'tex'. In the case of tex --fmt=plain ... the program ...

The tfm information is saved in .fmt file when tex -ini is run. The dvi output includes the shifts (numerically specified by internal unit) of current typesetting point. These commands are used at inter-word spaces, inter-letter kerns and at other vertical/horizontal spaces generated by TeX) the commands about typesetting the characters from the slots ...

You can always place your custom packages in /home/<username>/texmf/tex/latex. For packages coming with TeX Live, tlmgr (TeX Live manager) takes care of downloading and making the package available. If sudo was needed to install TeX Live, i.e. in a directory where a normal user has no writing rights, sudo will also be needed to run tlmgr. If TeX Live ...

This code compiles fine with MiKTeX: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \newtheorem{afnSpace}{Definition}[section] \newtheorem{frameDef}[afnSpace]{Definition} %Actually 5th definition \newtheorem{frameDef s1}{Definition}[afnSpace] \begin{document} \setcounter{section}{1} \section{Affine ...

Your installation was correct. If you try other fonts, you would encounter no problems. You just were unlucky enough to try the Garamond font first. The KPSE* family and the updmap are not the issue here. Apparently, the problem lies with the documentation at the LaTeX font catalog which claims that Garamond is part of TeXLive. Garamond is only partially ...

If you have both a GNU/Linux distribution provided TeX Live and a manually installed one, you'll have two different tlmgr. The one in /usr/bin will not update packages, but just change configuration parameters. The one in /usr/local/texlive/<YEAR>/bin/<ARCH>, instead, will do updates to the manually installed TeX Live. Here <YEAR> stands ...

An alternative route may be to use compat_freebsd - setup for running FreeBSD binaries under emulation and use the FreeBSD XeTeX port.
