Description Olivier Baudron 2001-09-24 15:36:33 EDT
Consider the following file 'bug.tex':

% --- begin testcase ---
\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\rotatebox{90}{Hello}
\end{document}
% --- end testcase ---

And make dvi and ps files:

$ latex bug
$ dvips -o bug.ps bug.dvi

The result is that the page displayed by 'xdvi bug.dvi' does not rotate the
box with the word "Hello". However, 'gv bug.ps' works fine.

My linux box has almost all its packages updated to the latest rawhide
version, in particular:

tetex*-1.0.7-29
ghostscript-6.51-13
ghostscript-fonts-5.50-4
Comment 1 Olivier Baudron 2001-11-04 00:27:19 EST
The problem persists with the latest rawhide packages:
tetex*-1.0.7-35
ghostscript-6.51-16
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-01-10 05:05:00 EST
Since PostScript and PDF output is fine, I don't really see a pressing need to 
fix xdvi.
