Description pete 1999-04-23 10:58:52 EDT
I am having trouble with the tetex rpm that I have
installed on a redhat 5.2 system.  When trying to
include documents of moderate size (~5k) into my
main tex document I get the following error:
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=262141].

This happens on my box with 128M (running 5.2) and on
my box with 256M (running 5.1).  I will dig out the
source and take a look to see if there is some hard-coded
limit, but if there is something trivial I have overlooked
please let me know.  Here is the "free" from by 5.2 box
immediately after the fail:

             total       used       free     shared
buffers     cached
Mem:        127796     122808       4988      33684
28832      74224
-/+ buffers/cache:      19752     108044
Swap:       130748        120     130628

This appears to be a generic issue with latex and not a
problem with the red-hat rpm.  You can remove the bug

This appears fixed.
