6.3.3. TeX capacity exceeded

If you encounter TeX errors, especially

TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=384000]

you may have to set in texmf.cnf (usually located in /etc/texmf, or where the TEXMFCNF environment variable (seeSection 7.1.3) shows):

main_memory = 3839999
main_memory.jadetex = 4999999
hash_extra.jadetex = 25000
pool_size.jadetex = 500000
save_size.jadetex = 15000
save_size = 8000

FYI, here's how much memory TeX used for this document (you may see such information in the .log file created by pdfjadetex which is deleted by default in lyxtox):

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:
 4847 strings out of 15997
 36267 string characters out of 99016
 163640 words of memory out of 384000
 15827 multiletter control sequences out of 10000+15000
 68666 words of font info for 129 fonts, out of 400000 for 1000
 14 hyphenation exceptions out of 1000
 31i,12n,40p,1588b,3161s stack positions out of 300i,100n,500p,50000b,8000s
