Description Stefan Neufeind 2008-07-03 15:47:26 UTC
Experienced the problem described here:

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 17:14:00 UTC
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 17:31:10 UTC
building gc with --enable-large-config seems perfectly reasonable, I'll look
into it.

Comment 3 Stefan Neufeind 2008-07-03 17:32:58 UTC
yes, sorry - you might be right about the launchpad-bug ...

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-07-13 00:30:47 UTC
gc built with --enable-large-config:
F-9 (scratch build):

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-07-13 01:23:28 UTC
OK, a legit and working F-9 (scrach) build: 

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-09-06 17:52:48 UTC
ping, anyone have a chance to try out the test gc build?

Comment 7 Lubomir Rintel 2008-10-27 09:10:17 UTC

Comment 8 Stefan Neufeind 2008-10-27 09:21:55 UTC
sorry, can't (shortly) test this myself

Comment 9 Lubomir Rintel 2009-01-09 10:36:25 UTC
So the new gc is in effect; and noone complained so far, so I am closing this.
