Description CBM 2008-01-19 20:30:57 UTC
On systems where dvips generates output by default, the dvips output that comes from texvc will show up in apache error logs. For example, I checked my log, and it has things like this:

This is dvips(k) 5.96.1 Copyright 2007 Radical Eye Software (
' TeX output 2007.08.13:1013' -> 

Adding the -q option to dvips in the first line of should fix this.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-01-20 05:26:32 UTC
Done in r29964.

dvipng is used preferentially if it's present, and appears to give clean output. Added -q option to dvips when it is used.
