I am trying to compile a large file which contains a tikz picture with more data points than tex can handle.
main_memory = 10000000
and on terminal I run
sudo fmtutil-sys --all
The problem is that this memory is not enough, and numbers bigger than that don't finish the fmtutil run properly. I get the error
fmtutil: Error! Not all formats have been built successfully.
To give a better idea of where the problem is coming from, if I only include in the file
texmf.cnf the lines
main_memory.latex = 15000000 main_memory.pdflatex = 15000000
then these are the files which are not properly built:
This is a summary of all `failed' messages: `pdftex -ini -jobname=latex -progname=latex -translate-file=cp227.tcx *latex.ini' failed `pdftex -ini -jobname=pdflatex -progname=pdflatex -translate-file=cp227.tcx *pdflatex.ini' failed
How can I increase the size of the memory beyond 10000000? Am I doing anything wrong?
(BTW, I am running texlive 2012 on a mac)
