I think I had and solved this one before ... but I'm no Perl expert ... 
but, after "upgrading" my linux installation I'm getting a bunch of errors.

When converting images I get:

pstoimg: Error: "/usr/bin/ppmquant -floyd 256 < 
/var/tmp/l2h31773/p31811.pnm | /usr/bin/pnmtopng -interlace -trans 
'gray85'  > img1.png" failed: Bad file descriptor

Error while converting image

over and over ...

I have checked to make sure I have the prerequisites ... I did not have 
perldoc (A Mandriva Powerpack 2006 install), but that is there now.

bob$ which perldoc ppmquant pnmtopng

Also, I've tried to run as root and get the same errors, so I'm pretty 
sure it's not a permission error.

I think there is a problem with pstoimg or some other part of the image 
conversion chain. Is there a command test I can do to trace it down?
