Dear pdfTeX help,                               
I did just spend over an hour with the FAQ and  
manual, trying to fix this--                    
I'm getting the                                 
"I can't find the format file `pdftex.fmt'!"    
Folllowing the manual, I did the                
pdftex -ini -fmt=pdftex plain                   
texconfig init                                  
steps.  My env includes                         
and that file exists and contains               
TEXFORMATS = .;$TEXMF/web2c                     
and the file exists:                            
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       371482 Jan 19
22:00 /usr/share/texmf/web2c/pdftex.fmt         
Please reply to me at this address.             
Many Thanks,
