Description Luca Baldini 2008-02-22 10:30:41 EST
Description of problem:
I was not able to process a .dvi file including some .eps figures in order to
produce a .pdf file via dvipdfm.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora core 9 alpha updated on Feb 22, 2008. Includes:

How reproducible:
Perfectly reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a latex file including a .eps figure via \includegraphics
2. Compile the dvi
3. Run dvipdfm on the svi itself

Additional info:

The config file should be in /usr/share/texmf/dvipdfm/......
But there is none. I can reproduce the error here, and it is indeed
certainly linked with that.

I'll investigate.

I think I found it. Too much is removed from texlive-texmf. A
patch is coming soon.
