[tex-k] problem with dvips

    I try to convert a dvi file, created in  Texlive, toa ps one.
    The system gives the message: "bad DVI file, first byte not preamble".

Is the dvi file empty?  I would surmise something is wrong in the
installation and TeX didn't even run properly, but this is not enough
information to guess what ...

Good luck,
