Description martin 1999-03-31 14:40:23 UTC
I apologize if this is a well-known problem, couldn't find it in the data base. Problem is the ghostscript configuration. GS, as delivered with RH 5.2, does not include the "pnmraw" device, which is required by ImageMagick to convert PS/EPS to any other image format. This makes Imagemagick unusable for one of its IMO most important tasks, converting EPS (used e.g. with LaTeX) to Web-suited image formats as PNG, GIF, or JPG. Reconfiguring the GS package to include the "pnmraw" device would suffice to solve the problem. Of course I can do that myself, but I think this should be fixed in a well-configured system.

This has been fixed in post RHL 5.2 releases of ghostscript, available in RawHide, the Red Hat Linux 5.9 beta, and of course it will be fixed in Red Hat Linux 6.0.
