Description ian 1999-05-25 09:31:08 EDT
using dvips as supplied with RedHat 5.2 (tetex-0.9-6),
incorrect postscript is generated from DVI files.  the DVI
in question is a LaTeX document, and when dvips is used to
convert it to postscript, the text is moved up the page such
that the top inch or so of the text is off the top of the
paper.  i noticed this when printing the document out, but i
can also see it in ghostview.

is this fixed in the 6.0 tetex package (tetex-0.9-17)?
since i don't want to upgrade to 6.0 just yet, i wanted to
know before i tried to find a couple hundred spare MB of
disk to rebuild the SRPM to link against glibc 2.0.... ;-)

Can you supply a TeX file that can reproduce the problem? Thanks.

I just packaged tetex-1.0.1 and your paper appears OK (modulo
some printer margin nonsense).
