I am trying to use package longtable to get a really long table in my
thesis. However, at the final stage of converting ps to pdf, i get the
following error:

Error: /undefined in nd
Operand stack:

Execution stack:
   %interp_exit   .runexec2   --nostringval--   --nostringval--

I tried checking with longtable examples given on net, and the error
persists, so it is not a problem with the syntax i used. If i put the
table in a test.tex file, and try to get pdf, i can get test.pdf. So
it is probably clashing with something else i defined in my main.tex?
Here is the header of my main.tex file:


\usepackage{cite} % Make references as [1-4], not [1,2,3,4]
\usepackage{url}  % Formatting web addresses
\usepackage{ifthen}  % Conditional
%\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc} %applemac support if unicode package fails
%\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} %UNIX support if unicode package fails

\oddsidemargin -10 pt      %   Left margin on odd-numbered pages.
    \evensidemargin 10 pt      %   Left margin on even-numbered pages.
    \marginparwidth 1 in       %   Width of marginal notes.
    \oddsidemargin 0.25 in      %   Note that \oddsidemargin = \evensidemargin
    \evensidemargin 0 in
    \marginparwidth 0.75 in
    \textwidth 6.375 true in % Width of text line.

\newcommand{\rmnum}[1]{\romannumeral #1}
\newcommand{\Rmnum}[1]{\expandafter\@slowromancap\romannumeral #1@}

Is there something in the above definitions that is causing the error
mentioned? Any help appreciated.
