I have just installed TeXnicCenter with Miktex installation. Everything
is fine except that I have been unable to configure to build the output
as :
LaTeX => DVI => PDF (using dvipdfm). Can anyone give any pointers?

Do you have ghostscript and ghostview installed?

I have both ghostscript and ghostview installed.
The problem is that I am using hyperref package. When I go through the
DVI => PS => PDF the links are not active (this option from TeXnic is
working fine and is producing a PDF). I have a lot of eps figures in
the document, so to convert them to another format and use PDFTeX is an
option I am enthusistic about.

good.  that's one thing that might have caused dvipdfm not to work.

since you don't actually say what the problem is with dvipdfm, it's
hard to be much help: what error messages does dvipdfm emit (hint:
if texniccenter is hiding these messages from you, try finding the log
file that it saves them in).

error messages?  this works for most people.  (you've not left the
[dvipdfm] option to hyperref in there, have you?)

epstopdf does the conversion for you (it's the same thing, in essence
as dvipdfm does on the fly).

it's a bit difficult to get a handle on what you actually _want_...

Thanks for the hint on checking the log. The error message was hidden
by TeXnic. Somehow I managed to track it and understood that I was
passing the arguments to dvipdfm wrongly. It is now working fine.

Unable to get PPS working
I am running a dual Athlon system. The distribution is RedHat 8.0 but I've compiled a custom kernel. The kernel is 2.4.21 and the PPSKit is version 2.1.4. The kernel seemed to patch and compile perfectly. I don't have any hardware currently so I'm using gen_pps.c to test my setup. The problem (or at least my biggest one) is that gen_pps is not creating any interrupts. If I run 'watch -n 1 cat /proc/interrupts' I get lots of activity on the rtc but nothing under serial. As far as I can tell I need to generate interrupts for my PPS source to be 'reached'...

Unable to get GRIDDATA Function to Work Properly
Hello IDL'ers I'm trying to do some interpolation with the GRIDDATA function. I have a regular lon/lat grid spanning the globe, consisting of values that are either 0 or 1.

Unable to get the timer working correctly in LPC2148
I have written code for delay using timer in LPC2148. But I am not able to get the desired time delay. 1 Sec delay if I give, it looks like 100 msec (Ddd not calculate correctly). Somewhere something is wrong it looks. Anybody can help? I have written code comments and I hope it is good enough. Also is it good idea to disable and enable timer as in delayus() or allow timer to run continuously instead reset the T0TC? Which one is efficient? I felt clearing T0TC might be efficient since it takes only one instruction cycle. // Timer resolution is 10 micro Second with PCLK = 15 MHz. ...

Unable to get dual boot system to work with Grub

How to get CJK 4.7.0 work under MiKTeX 2.5?
Dear all and Mr. Werner Lemberg, I'm running MiKTeX 2.5 under Windows XP SP2. The CJK package contained is 4.5.2. I heard that the bookmarks will appear correctly if I upgrade to 4.7.0. I downloaded CJK 4.7.0 from cjk.ffii.org, and extracted everything under texinput folder to "MiKTeX 2.5\tex\latex \CJK" folder. But after that I ran pdflatex on my tex file again, the bookmarks were still not readable. What else should I do? By the way, how can I use a font other than gbsn? That font is awful when switched to bold type. I would like to have something as nice as TrueType font und...
