I have a problem with the tex memory while using pgfplots and a very huge dataset in Ubuntu. Under Windows with MikTeX I have the following settings and the texfile compile without any problems:
main_memory=250000000 extra_mem_top=50000000 extra_mem_bot=50000000 save_size=15000 stack_size=15000
In Ubuntu 11.04 with TexLive i set the tex memory settings according to the pgfplots-manual.
1) i create a texmf.cnf in the directory: /home/user/System/mytexcnf 2) content of texmf.cnf is listed above. 3) run "sudo texhash" 4) create environment variable with: export TEXMFCNF=~/System/texmf/mytexcnf:
Running my texfile gives errors and here is the text from the logfile:
Here is how much of TeX's memory you used: 18954 strings out of 494950 443204 string characters out of 3177351 3000001 words of memory out of 3000000 21827 multiletter control sequences out of 15000+200000 5432 words of font info for 20 fonts, out of 3000000 for 9000 36 hyphenation exceptions out of 8191 65i,13n,78p,2482b,1740s stack positions out of 5000i,500n,10000p,200000b,50000s
Did i something wrong by setting the tex memory? How can i see from the logfile the needed values for the memory parameters? How can i change the texmf.cnf later? Only by opening in an editor, change the values, saving and run texhash?
