[solved] texlive-core 2013.30962-1 / fmtutil-sys

$pdflatex  foobar
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013/Arch Linux)
restricted \write18 enabled.
---! /var/lib/texmf/web2c/pdftex/pdflatex.fmt doesn't match pdftex.pool
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

...okay let's run
#fmtutil-sys --all

/usr/bin/fmtutil: line 395: /usr/share/texmf/texconfig/tcfmgr: No such file or directory
fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.

...well the proper path would be
/usr/share/texmf-dist/texconfig/tcfmgr
according to the new texlive-core package

Guess the package needs a fix or am I missing something?!

I can confirm that copying the *.pacnew files in /etc/texmf over the non .pacnew files and running fmtutil --all fixes the issue.

Re: [solved] texlive-core 2013.30962-1 / fmtutil-sys

after moving the pacnew files, "fmtutil-sys --all" as root did the job for me.

Re: [solved] texlive-core 2013.30962-1 / fmtutil-sys

Command line solution:

pacdiff && fmtutil-sys --all

and further reference.

Beware of overwritting sensible config files, like fstab (with pacdiff). I said 'yes' to all, and manually I have to restore fstab (via restoring booting system)

Re: [solved] texlive-core 2013.30962-1 / fmtutil-sys

This bug hit a few of my arch linux machines. None of the above fixes quite did it, so I'll just leave this bash script fix here for the next passerby:

cd /etc/texmf
for i in $(find `pwd` -name *.pacnew | grep .pacnew)
do
        mv $i $(echo ${i/.pacnew/})
done

sudo fmtutil-sys --all

To let pacdiff only work in /etc/texmf (where the issues occur) and not touch other .pacnew-files: Specify the directory where pacdiff should search via the environment variable 'DIFFSEARCHPATH' (see also pacdiff -h):

DIFFSEARCHPATH=/etc/texmf pacdiff && fmtutil-sys --all

This prevents from accidentally overwrite user-modified configuration files outside /etc/texmf, like /etc/fstab, /etc/pacman.conf and all the others.

That worked for me, but i had to change it to:

cd /etc/texmf
for a in `find . -name "*.pacnew"`; do
    sudo mv $(echo ${a/.pacnew/}) $(echo ${a/.pacnew/}).mybackup;
    sudo mv $a $(echo ${a/.pacnew/});
done
sudo fmtutil-sys --all

It also backup the old files...

Confirm, this message is back again. The fix mentioned above is not working anymore. Pls remove "Solved" from the main post.

Update: Worked again! I used script from the #11 post, after that everything is working as before.
