that's definitely not what zdenek meant.

this really isn't the sort of thing to discuss on this mailing list
(it's a latex problem rather than a tex live distribution problem).

try a tex newsgroup, a mailing list or a forum

i list options in http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=gethelp

as zdenek said, there is possibly a problem with your .eps file: making
that available on-line for comment might help.

(yes, i appreciate it's not always easy, and that you may not wish to do
so, for intellectual property or other reasons.)
