On 11 Jul 2001 I wrote to Fabrice and SPQR:

It seems I was completely blind not finding one more `0' in
main_memory.latex ;-}}} I always had the same problem when running
All other (huge context, etc.) formats generate well.
The most interesting thing that latex can be well generated on win98, ME,
NT and 2000, even with main_memory.latex = 11000000 ????
There is a quick list of urgent corrections to the TL6 (20010730):
main_memory.latex = 11000000
main_memory.latex = 1100000
mktexlsr after making language.dat (as I wrote to Fabrice, texsetup
works perfectly only with Polish Windows -- miracle ?? :-))
Fabrice, would you please puting the new version on www.tug.org/texlive
or we have to add some hints, as I wrote on 23 Aug 2001:

(we have in maintenance mode:
Running g:\TeX\bin\win32\fmtutil --missing --dolinks
but latex is already made, without needed patterns)
3. pdftex.def, graphics.cfg/color.cfg updated by Heiko Oberdiek
Who can dress the above into more human readable words and put on
