I'm sure this is an amateur problem, but I can't seem to get my BibTeX bibliography to compile using pdfLaTeX. It worked before when I did Latex->DVI->PDF, but then I had to add some syntactic trees using tikz-qtree, which requires the document be compiled with pdfLaTeX. Now the bibliography doesn't compile. In the main document, I get a TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [parameter stack size=10000] error. In the MWE, no errors come back, but only "References" appears in the PDF. I'm thinking I may be missing a package in the preamble, or one of the other packages in my thesis (tikz, tikz-qtree, expex, tipa, mathtools, caption) may be causing the conflict. Deleting the .aux file, etc., and recompiling hasn't worked either. There are a few url links in the .bib file. I should note that when I usually compile my bibliography using BibTeX I use the LaTeX->DVI->PDF method rather than pdfLaTeX and it usually works fine. Using Kile on Ubuntu 11.10.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[pdftex]{hyperref}

This compiles fine here. Your sample file contains no text before the bibliography. Adding some text, gives no problem. Adding \usepackage{tikz} gives no problem. –  Andrew Swann Aug 20 '12 at 11:23
    
Silly question, but did you compile with pdfLaTeX? It won't work for me, I still get an empty page with "References" at the top. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? It should be compiled: pdflatex->bibtex->pdflatex->pdflatex, right? –  khelke Aug 20 '12 at 12:03
    
Does bibtex creat a file .bbl? If so, this file should contain the whole bibliography and it certainly should not be empty. –  tohecz Aug 20 '12 at 12:38

Rather old. You should update. And the version of bibtex? –  Kurt Aug 20 '12 at 13:33

Have a look to this question and to this. Help for updating please in a new question. –  Kurt Aug 20 '12 at 13:54
