ps2pdf

Converting a PostScript output to PDF with the script ps2pdf often fails with the error message
invalid fileaccess

From the dvips man page:

 -R[0|1|2]
              Run  securely.   -R2  disables  both  shell command execution in \special'{} (via backticks ` ) and config
              files (via the E option), and opening of any absolute filenames.  -R1 , the default, forbids shell escapes
              but allows absolute filenames.  -R0 allows both.  The config file option is z
run the file with dvips -R0 file.dvi

Another problem maybe GhostScript. it is called with the option -dSAFER to prevent overwriting an existing file. But some GhostScript version doesn't accept a call by a script and opening a pst-geo data file with a path. Run GhostScript with
gs -q -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dNoSafer "-sOutputFile=<file>.pdf" -c .setpdfwrite -f "<file>.ps"

Coast line of Turquey

pst-fractal
Using pst-geo together with pst-fractal can cause some errors if you try to set the optional parameter Radius which is defined in both packages but with a different syntax. In such a case use always a package depending setting:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pst-fractal,pst-eucl}
\begin{document}

\begin{pspicture}[showgrid](-0.5,-0.5)(3.4,2.3)
  \pstGeonode[PosAngle={90,0}](0.5,0.5){A}(2,1){B}
  \psset[pst-eucl]{Radius=\pstDistAB{A}{B}}% only valid for pst-eucl
  \pstCircleOA[DistCoef=0.5,]{B}{}
  \ncline{A}{B}
\end{pspicture}

\end{document}
