However, today in trying to use LyX:

the history:
======

1-under Debian lenny I upgraded to Lyx1.6.2 (using a debian Lyx1.6.2 package).
Running a document (koma book) I got this error:
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript
(this message is constantly repeated)

2-I was adviced to replace Ghostscript 8.62 by Ghostscript 8.64.
Since it was not available under lenny, I used Debian squeeze, but things got 
worse because I muddled up my debian lenny linux.

3-Therefore I installed  LyX 1.6.3 hoping that this would help. It did not. In 
running my document I get again:
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript 
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript 
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

and after a long run lyx disappears and I get:
lyx: SIGSEGV signal caught
Sorry, you have found a bug in LyX. Please read the bug-reporting instructions 
in Help->Introduction and send us a bug report, if necessary. Thanks !
Bye.

the situation:
========
I will now run it again under  bug-reporting and report on it.
Before I do it I have tested the Introduction to LyX under help and get
wolfg...@wolfgang:~/Desktop$ lyx -dbg Intro-x.lyx
Setting debug level to Intro-x.lyx
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript 
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript 
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript 
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
dvipng warning: No GhostScript pngalpha output, cannot render raw PostScript 
GPL Ghostscript 8.62: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

In contrast to my document it stops putting out these errors (only those shown 
above) and LyX does not break down.
There is no output in Latex protocoll. Where would I find the debug report?


the question:
========
is there anybody in the list who uses Debian lenny and LyX either 1.6.2 or 
later svn versions successfully? Is she/he using Ghostscript 8.64 and from 
where can I get a Debian package?

Thanks for your attention

Wolfgang
