Hi scumbag,

I can not reproduce the problem with the dvi. Could you attach the EPS image too?

Comment 3 scumbag 2010-08-03 21:58:19 EDT
The problem is gone, i can't reproduce the problem anymore, by the way I also include the DVI.

Postscript file which causes a fatal internal error

On a fully updated F14 system including evince-2.31.90-1.fc14, the attached PS file causes a "fatal internal error -100". This happens for -any- PS file that I have tried. The test file has been created by abiword; its PDF counterpart can be displayed without any issue.
Comment 5 Joachim Frieben 2010-09-10 00:57:02 EDT
In fact, the culprit seems to be ghostscript-8.71-15.fc14: 'ghostscript abiword.ps" also fails and returns:

Comment 6 Joachim Frieben 2011-01-09 14:42:46 EST
Issue is resolved for ghostscript-8.71-16.fc14 which is available for F13, too. Please verify for F13 and close the bug, thanks.

It appears to me that the problem has not been fixed.  I am testing ghostscript-8.71-22.fc14.x86_64 from Koji build system, and evince-dvi still crashes a lot on dvi files generated by latex.  The dvi viewer is evince-2.32.0-3.fc14.x86_64 with evince-dvi.

I created a test case so you can discover whether this causes trouble on your site.  To build the dvi file from the latex source you need REVTeX 4.1.

Although I'm still trying to successfully create a minimal test latex file that does not depend on REVTeX 4.1 (or any specific LaTeX class or package), I don't think that the problem lies with REVTeX alone.  The generated dvi file can be correctly rendered or processed by xdvi and dvips.  Only evince causes lots of crashes.

AFAIK, on my computer (F14 x86_64) there are five (!) results that could arise randomly from viewing the generated dvi file using evince:

1.  The process crashes with a backtrace like this:
fatal internal error -100*** glibc detected *** evince: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0x00007f3df07359b0 ***

Correct, I am seeing this, too!
Comment 10 Marek Kašík 2011-01-11 10:05:05 EST

the problem here is that ghostscript calls wrong scan_token() function in psi/imainarg.c:597. It should call its own scan_token() but it calls t1lib's scan_token().
I tried to rename scan_token() and all its calls to scan_gs_token() in ghostscript and it doesn't crash or show the error now (and renders the image correctly).
Maybe the bug http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=689698 should be reopened :).
I'm reassigning this to ghostscript.
