Exporting a Graphics[] expression to EPS requires the FrontEnd to
generate the EPS for any typeset text that appears in the graphic
(fractions, radicals, etc), even if you run the Export[] command from a
standalone MathKernel process.  In order for the FrontEnd to run on
your x86-64 Linux machine it needs to have access to an X11 server
(real or virtual).
