Description jay 1999-04-20 09:43:37 UTC
On a Pentium system upgraded from 5.2 to 5.9, none of the
TeX engines work.  For example "tex foo.tex" complains that
the file tex.fmt is missing.

If you run "texconfig", is does a lot of initial work before
providing the usual initial dialog box.  If you immediately
quit at this point, TeX (and friends) will now work fine.

Oops.  This looks like a re-report of bug 2080.   Sorry!
