Equations can't be broken as automatically as straight text, human intervention is still required.

comment figures are disappear in .pdf
It is generally better to use pdflatex directly, such funnies are routine nuisances when going the LaTeX --> DVI --> PDF route, instead of directly LaTeX --> PDF. Make sure the image formats are handled by your graphics package, pdflatex ones prefer PDF, PNG, while they balk at others. Yes, it hurts. But just once, when you've got the workflow figured out, you'll forget all about it.

comment How to create a Beamer overlay \cover command, dual to \uncover?
What is wrong with \uncover for the complement? That is presumably why beamer doesn't have a \cover in the first place...

comment Alternatives to LaTeX
@qunying, "not using a source version control system" is a very bad idea, and makes me stay away... Linux did pull it off for a long time, but then again, Linus is Linus. And he ended up creating git...

comment Alternatives to LaTeX
I used ditroff to typeset my thesis. And I believe groff has taken over some of $\TeX$ line-handling and math formatting techniques, so it should be comparable for text at least. But overall a troff document feels like assembler to $\LaTeX$' more structured approach. Lerned $'LaTeX$, and never looked back.

comment Errors in LaTeX source
Some times such messages are due to old versions of .aux and such temporary files laying around. Clean up and try again.

comment Including a jpg image, source code compilation in pdflatex doesn't create pdf
As the other comments say, your image isn't being understood for some reason. Try leaving out the extension, check (using an image viewer) that the image is there, on Linux/MacOS the file(1) command should tell you what the image file really contains (perhaps some tool-specific format, or some different format than you think?).

comment Include PDF images with interpolate=true
Use raster formats for raster images; use vector formats for vector images. Less trouble overall (even if you don't do this). Perhaps you can get the original, un-PDFed image, or somehow cut it out of the PDF.

@JuriRobl, AFAIU OP's problem is that somehow makeidx is injecting this. Perhaps it needs some nudgning in direction PDF?
