Hi all!

When trying out XeTeX following
I got this (I have a full teTeX installation + ConTeXt, etc. with
i-installer on a Mac OS X 10.3.9 is from yesterday.):

-- Command with output --

UMac:~/Projekte/ConTeXt/ uma$ texexec --xtx main.tex

  TeXExec 5.4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005

fixing engine variable : xetex
             executable : xetex
                 format : cont-en
              inputfile : main
                 output : xetex
              interface : en
           current mode : none
                TeX run : 1

This is XeTeX, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.99b (Web2C 7.5.3)
  (WARNING: translate-file "natural.tcx" ignored)

         total run time : 4 seconds

                warning : use 'texmfstart texexec' instead

-- Running XeTeX on the input file in TeXShop yields: --

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

-- The input file was: --



\title{The Main Title}

Bla, {\bf bla}, blah!\footnote[fn01]{\language[de] Beispielfußnote} And
some formula: $$ \int^\infty_0 e^{-x^2} dx.$$


-- End --

Hope somebody has any idea on this.

Bye and thanks to all for help!
