I have 2 problems with texlive.

First, xelatex is missing.
Second, pdflates doesn't compile files. Here I show the error.

alba:~$ pdflatex example.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015/Alpine
Linux) (preloaded format=pdflatex)

I can't find the format file `pdflatex.fmt'!
