I installed texlive-full on my Ubuntu 7.10 by apt-get.
When I try to include an eps file, after latex the .tex file, the 
resulting dvi shows only a blank frame for the figure.

But when I transform the .eps file to a PDF file and pdflatex the .tex 
file, the output is ok.

The attached is the tex file, eps file I used and files produced by
latex test

And below are the texlive components in my machine (by dpkg -l | grep
