Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 88842
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:02 EDT
The executable dvipdfm (which is used by kdvi from kegraphics package)
segfaults when run on a dvi file containing embedded eps figures. It runs
ok when the document contains no figures. I am at the latest rawhide level
as of 4-14-2003.

Small TeX file with figure

Included eps file
Any eps file would do!
I have built the dvipdfm-0.13.2c-1.i386.rpm from its source and installed
it over tetex and this one does not crash with any eps file. I could not
figure out though what the difference is between the two.
The culprit seems to be tetex-2.0.2-dvipdfm-security.patch. I am not an expert in
mkstemp but looking at other examples made a new patch, which does not segfault.
This is attached below.

Next build will contain the fix. Thanks.
