The above is a link that works only temporarily and just points to
some Usenet article.  Please notice that postings on this list are
archived separately and people might look for advice in it, so it is
always a good idea to actually _describe_ the encountered problem.  In
this case, cut&paste would have sufficed.

You are using an old version of preview-latex with a very new version
of GhostScript.  While I don't think that there have been many
relevant changes in the PostScript processing code since then, there
_has_ been quite an advance in the error report command which now
includes a lot more information.

I'd recommend to first upgrade to a current version of AUCTeX (11.83
is the latest one, though we will likely release the next version
rather soon), then try whether this helps.  If not, run the bug
reporting command afterwards: it should fill in most of the details of
the failed run.

If there are PostScript errors, also middle-click on the error icons
(should not be more than 2, I think) and paste the resulting error
messages into your report.  You could do this even with your current
version, but I don't think that it is worth trying to keep
AUCTeX/preview-latex 11.55/0.9.1 around anyway, so you might as well
upgrade first.
