Description Stefan Neufeind 2008-07-03 11:47:26 EDT
Experienced the problem described here:
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tilesathome/2008-February/001835.html
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tilesathome/2008-April/002106.html
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/202103/+viewstatus

It seems, as the links describe, there is a way to use a switch for compiling
the garbage-collector to allow working with larger data. Could that possibly be
used to compile Inkscape/GC for Fedora, if not in general maybe at least on
x86_64 (which might theoretically have a bit more memory) or so?
Comment 1 Lubomir Rintel 2008-07-03 13:14:00 EDT
Thanks for the report Stefan. I've CCed GC's maintainer, Rex -- His opinion is
definitely needed here.

Also, to me it seems like the launchpad bug you linked to is another issue.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-07-03 13:31:10 EDT
building gc with --enable-large-config seems perfectly reasonable, I'll look
into it.
Comment 3 Stefan Neufeind 2008-07-03 13:32:58 EDT
yes, sorry - you might be right about the launchpad-bug ...
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-07-12 20:30:47 EDT
gc built with --enable-large-config:
rawhide: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=712359
F-9 (scratch build): http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=712365
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-07-12 21:23:28 EDT
OK, a legit and working F-9 (scrach) build:

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-09-06 13:52:48 EDT
ping, anyone have a chance to try out the test gc build?
Comment 7 Lubomir Rintel 2008-10-27 05:10:17 EDT
Ping?
Comment 8 Stefan Neufeind 2008-10-27 05:21:55 EDT
sorry, can't (shortly) test this myself
Comment 9 Lubomir Rintel 2009-01-09 05:36:25 EST
So the new gc is in effect; and noone complained so far, so I am closing this.
