It looks as if you have installed the brand new version 3.0 of teTeX,
is that right?
In that case, I'm afraid that LilyPond 2.4.2 can get into some minor
problems, since it was designed to work together with version 2 of
teTeX. If you don't want the new teTeX for any other purposes, it might
be easiest to install version teTeX version 2.x instead.

I have also encountered some problems with the default installation of
teTeX in Debian/Woody, but have never realized if if was general problems or something specific in my installation. Anyway, I ended up
compiling and installing my own teTeX version 2.something at that time.

I have debian/woody and lilypond 2.4.2.  I understand that there is a
problem with the tex installation. I followed the steps on the CTAN page.
The testfile: sample.text works without problems.

But "lilypond" still produces the error:

Layout output to `example-1.tex'...
Converting to `example-1.dvi'...
Error invoking `latex \\nonstopmode \\input example-1.tex > /dev/null 2>&1
'. Return value 256

The latex command says:

This is e-TeXk, Version 3.141592-2.1 (Web2C 7.5.2)

No pages of output.

fmtutil: /opt/TeX/texmf-var/web2c/latex.fmt installed.

Can You help me out?
