I am a Fedora 12 user running texlive 2007. I have added the tikz and pgfplot packages also.
I get this error when I run latex on one of my .tex files:
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=1500000]
I know that this is not due to a syntax error. I am making a plot using pgfplot which contains thousands of points. When I include fewer points, the .dvi file is created without any errors, therefore the number of points is definitely the cause of the problem.
To fix this I tried changing texmf.cnf in /usr/share/texmf/web2c/. I changed: main_memory = 1500000 to main_memory = 3000000.
After doing so, I still got the same error as above. Then I tried to "redump the format files" by issuing the command fmtutil --all. I still get the same error as above.
Does anyone have any suggestions about what I should do to enlarge TeX?
