Description roland.kay 1999-06-13 09:25:19 EDT
I am including gzipped eps files in a latex document as

\newcommand{\incloggrf}[2][1.0] { % Include a graphic


When viewing the resulting .dvi file, xdvi frequently

/tmp/xdvicwmkog/xdvik9TKkCF: File exists

In the viewer some of the .eps files are replaced with
others from elsewhere in the document or are missing.

Latex finds the .eps.gz files and each has a corresponding
.eps.bb file containing the BoundingBox line.

If dvips is used to convert the .dvi file to a postscript
file then gv displays the resulting .ps file correctly.

My system is Intel Pentium 166Mhz, Kernel 2.2.9, Redhat 6.0
upto date with the current errata.

Can you verify if your problem is still present in tetex-1.0.1
(available through Raw Hide)? Thanks ...
Comment 2 roland.kay 1999-06-19 04:32:59 EDT
I've just verified this bug with the latest tetex release (1.0.1-2)
The output of xdvi is as follows...

% xdvi report

TMP file: /tmp/xdvidifMAu2

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-13 09:43:59 EDT
Can you send an example file that exhibits this problem? Thanks.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-05 11:24:59 EDT
I'd like to get this last tetex problem resolved but I need
a simple test case. Does anyone have a simple test case or
a report that this is not a problem with the latest tetex
from Raw Hide? Thanks.
