Description of problem:
epstopdf produces pdf 1.3
pdflatex only handles pdf 1.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. convert a eps figure into pdf using epstopdf
2. write latex document using graphicx and \includegraphics
including the pdf figure.
3. run pdflatex on the latex document
Actual Results: Error message complaining incompatible pdf version
Expected Results: pdf with figures included
Please make the old epstopdf available as epstopdf1.2
Can you please see if tetex-1.0.7-36.4 (from rawhide) fixes this problem? It
has a much newer pdfTeX, and epstopdf-produced PDFs work fine for me using it.
Please let me know, because I would like to make a bug-fix release of teTeX
addressing this problem.
Closing, since this is almost certainly fixed with the newer pdfTeX (it sounds
like one of the common problems).
