# LaTeX hungs on EPS processing

The pdflatex.exe process hungs. I have two TeX files, FIRST imports SECOND (by using combine class). SECOND file has \includegraphics{DDS_images_eps/SIN_0.eps}, and compiles fine. But FIRST hungs. In FIRST file I commented all unnecessary fields. Ending of FIRST file Log is

What's the problem?

UPDATE:MWE

SECOND file

\documentclass[12pt,notitlepage]{article}
%\usepackage{graphicx}
%\usepackage{subfig}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[!h]
\includegraphics[width=0.4\textwidth]{SIN_1800.pdf}
\caption{Ground state}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


FIRST file

\documentclass[report,12pt,a4paper,twoside]{combine}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subfig}
\begin{document}
\begin{papers}
\import{MWE_child}
\end{papers}
\end{document}


MWE work if I disable subfig package or \caption{..}. But I can't disable it. Rest of the file can use it.

Nevertheless, when I compile SECOND file(with uncomment packages) it work fine.

Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It is considered a lot better to put in some code that will compile, as it makes it a lot easier for us to copy it into our text editor and work with it, and see exactly what it is you are trying to do. –  Stephan Lehmke Nov 28 '12 at 14:46
The protocol only shows a successful graphics inclusion. Try to make a MWE or at least try to identify the problematic source code lines, e.g. by moving \end{document} around, or adding \show\x or \typeout{...} as debugging helpers. –  Heiko Oberdiek Nov 28 '12 at 16:01
I tested a little, when I add \caption{sometext} between \begin{figure}[!h] and \end{figure} it doesn't work, but if I remove \caption all work fine. What is wrong? –  Jupiter Nov 28 '12 at 16:39
I can't understand what is the problem, so I just replaced \usepackage{subfig} commands by \usepackage{caption}, \usepackage{subcaption}commands. It works. –  Jupiter Nov 29 '12 at 17:48
It's not possible for pdflatex to use eps files. You can convert them using the ps2pdf command from the ghostscript package and then include the PDFs.
I use epstopdf package. So if pdf file doesn't exist, epstopdf build it(i compile SECOND file), but in case with FIRST file latex hungs. –  Jupiter Nov 28 '12 at 15:52
the epstopdf package requires the shell-escape feature; have you enabled that? –  wasteofspace Nov 28 '12 at 15:53
Hmm, I disabled epstopdf and included pdf files(in SECOND file). But FIRST file doesn't compile. –  Jupiter Nov 28 '12 at 16:26
@wasteofspace epstopdf doesn't need --shell-escape, for TeX Live 2011 or later and, I believe, with MiKTeX 2.9 –  egreg Nov 28 '12 at 18:39
