I don't know. You do not tell much. You can invoke dvipdfm with the  
option -v or even -vv so see some more.

The important thing is that dvipdfm cannot include PS or EPS files.  
These need to be converted to PDF, PNG, or JPEG. An exception is  
output from METAPOST, for which dvipdfm has kind of an internal  
interpreter. Dvipdfm can use Ghostscript to convert other PS or EPS  
files to PDF, but you need to give dvipdfm some clues on doing so.

"texdoc dvipdfm" on the command line should explain, starting at page  

BTW, why do you use:


The use of


would suffice.



If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim  
me as a German, and France will declare that I am a citizen of the  
world. Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a  
German, and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.
