Description Bob Dowling 2002-04-10 06:52:48 EDT
Description of Problem:
pdfjadetex cannot deal with its format file, complaining about a "
Fatal format file error".  According to strace the format file it has just tried
to read is 
/usr/share/texmf/web2c/pdfjadetex.fmt

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.6-4

How Reproducible:
Always reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a suitable TeX file: "docbook2tex article.xml" creates article.tex
2. Convert this to PDF: "pdfjadetex article.tex" gives the error

Actual Results:
$ pdfjadetex article.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-14h-released-20010417 (Web2C 7.3.3.1)
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

Expected Results:
Creation of the file article.pdf


Additional Information:
The last few lines of the strace output include:

open("/usr/share/texmf/web2c/pdfjadetex.fmt", O_RDONLY) = 3
 ...read(3, "\33\16\7\\\17\377\377\377\0\0\32d\0\0\0\0\0\26\343`\0\0"..., 4096)
= 4096
 ...
write(1, "(Fatal format file error; I\'m st"..., 39) = 39
