2 errors occured while generating hardcopy: * Failed to convert TeX to PDF with command 'cd /opt/webwork/courses/L6_physics/html/tmp/hardcopy/work.CT8YEDOy && /usr/bin/pdflatex --shell-escape >pdflatex.stdout 2>pdflatex.stderr hardcopy' (exit=255 signal=0 core=0). * No errors encoundered in TeX log.
I'm running on Linux 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5 - Whitebox 5, a CentOS derivative. After digging, I found that Ghostscript was missing. Installed with yum install ghostscript and it works now.
I'm only writing because there's no mention of Ghostscript in the installation instructions on the Wiki.
