Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77097
gv can't display file that ghostscript can
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:30 EST
The attached postscript file was produced by AppleWorks 6 running on MacOS 9.
If I run "ghostscript" on it, it displays just fine. However, if I run "gv" on
it, I get an error popup with this in it:
Unrecoverable error: rangecheck in setscreen
1.24912e-05 0 --nostringval--
Error: PostScript interpreter failed in main window.
I have what's current in Raw Hide, in particular gv-3.5.8-19,
ghostscript-7.05-22, and these versions of the packages on which they depend
(most of these are probably irrelevant, but too much information is better than

AppleWorks file that gv can't handle
'Red Hat Raw Hide' refers to the development tree for Red Hat Linux. Red Hat
Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues were not resolved in a more timely manner.
However, the issues listed in these bugs are in packages that are no longer
shipped in a current Fedora Core release. Hence, we are closing these bugs CANTFIX.
This is still an issue in gv-3.6.1-7.fc5.i386.rpm in Fedora Extras.
This bug is fixed upstream since yesterday night. The fix is in the upstream CVS
'nd will be included in the release 3.6.3 which will be released soon.
GV 3.6.3 has been released today.
gv 3.6.3 is in devel and will be in F-8. If you would like an update for
earlier versions let me know.
