Okay,

I'm using the rpm's of the docbook tools. I did a clean install of RedHat
6.2, and followed the recommendation of the page at
http://i18n.kde.org/doc/install.html by de-installing the RPM's that ship
with RedHat and installing the following:

   docbook-dtd30-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-dtd31-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-dtd40-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-dtd41-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-style-dsssl-1.57-2.noarch.rpm
   docbook-utils-0.5.5-1.noarch.rpm
   jade-1.2.1-6.i386.rpm
   jadetex-2.20-2.noarch.rpm
   perl-SGMLSpm-1.03ii-3.noarch.rpm
   sgml-common-0.3-1.noarch.rpm

I copied the simple "Hello World" example from
http://nis-www.lanl.gov/~rosalia/mydocs/docbook-intro/get-going.html#HELLO-WORLD
into a file called "helloworld.docbook". 

As people have mailed this list pointing out, the documentation on the
sources site is outdated, so I had to guess as to what flags would work
with the docbook utilities. Here's what I tried:

   docbook2pdf \
   ?  -c /usr/share/sgml/docbook/sgml-dtd-3.1/catalog \
   ?  -d /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.57/print/docbook.dsl
   helloworld.docbook

Is this right? I'd be happy to mail Mark Galassi a patch to the
http://sources.redhat.com/docbook-tools/ web page that documents how to
use the flags with the file locations where the RPM's put things if
someone can get me started on the right path.

Also, it seems like there is a problem actually producing a .pdf, here's
what I get:

   Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.0.cat,
   /usr/share/sgml/docbook/sgml-dtd-3.1/catalog
   Using stylesheet:
   /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.57/print/docbook.dsl
   Working on: /home/wbrooks/box/work/foo/helloworld.docbook
   This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
   (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)


...are other people able to get this working? 

Bill

You can find an updated and completed version of this tutorial at

	http://www.caldera.de/~eric/crash-course/HTML/index.html

It also has updated "hello world" examples in it.

The two -c and -d flags should not be necessary. But they ensure you use
"bare bones" Norman Walsh's stuff, and not our default stylesheet.

If you volunteer to update the web pages, to me you're welcome ;-).
Mark?

The 3.0 catalog has been auto-detected by the docbook-utils because
you're trying to render a 3.0 (outdated) document.
The 3.1 catalog is used because you specified it on the command line.
This tells you you should remove the "-c" argument that forces here to
use a wrong catalog.

TeX classical problem. The default configuration files do not allow
enough resources for docbook.

I think we have a corrected version on the web site. Attached is also a
patch we use at KDE.

I wanted to try the new Red Hat 7.0 with the DocBook
tools in there - it seems that the db2html stuff is
working fine, but generating db2pdf jams, due to PNG
images:

Jade begin document sequence at 19

Any clues on which package that is broken?

Okay, I tried it again by just using the docbook2pdf helloworld.docbook
and still ran into some problems. Here's what I get with the same
helloworld document:

  docbook2pdf helloworld.docbook
  Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.0.cat
  Using stylesheet:
  /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.5.5/docbook-utils.dsl#print
  Working on: /home/wbrooks/box/work/foo/helloworld.docbook
  This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
  (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

So it looks like the correct version of the DTD and stylesheets are
getting used for this document, but it can't get pdfTeX to even begin
generating a .pdf file.

Absolutely, I can either mail a patch to the existing web page or change
something in a CVS repository somewhere.

My texmf.cnf file is substantially different than yours so applying the
patch failed. Can you send the whole file? Thanks in advance.

Right. It's a TeX problem, not a DocBook problem.

Let's wait for Mark's answer.

The patch is not big and easy to read, so you can patch by hand. On the
contrary, if you get my file, it might break other things on your
machine.

No one of you seen that problem?

Can anyone help (guess) which package might be
broken. Which tool is used on Linux to convert png to
the format pdfjadetex can use?

Could you send me (not the list) a DocBook document and db2pdf command
line that causes this problem?

here you are

db2html bug70.sgml -> no problem
db2ps bug70.sgml -> does run - but PS file is corrupted
db2pdf bug70.sgml -> crash and burn

--------

db2pdf output;

 
LaTeX Warning: Reference `TEST-FIG' on page 4 undefined
on input line 406.
 
[4.0.46]libpng error: Application must be
recompiled; version 1.0.6 was incompatible
 
Error: pdfjadetex (file
smallfig.png): png_create_read_struct() failed   

--------

It seems that the libpng-1.0.8-1.i386.rpm from RH7.0 is
broken or at least incompatible with pdfjadetex

(Note; normally I never attach files to lists - but this 
attachment is <7kb so I hope you are not offended by it)

Thanks.  The problem goes away after a tetex rebuild.  :-/  I'll look
into this.

Could you at the same time make the adjustments to the
TeTex settings, so the buffers for pdfjadetex are much
higher. Standard problem with raw RH 6.2
latex/sgmltools stuff I had. The current settings I use
(big books) are found at
http://www.sslug.dk/~pto/texmf.cnf

and it would be nice to have Danish commented in - not
out in the file
/usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/config/language.dat :-)

Are you still having trouble with this in Red Hat Linux 7?

In general it's best to put things like this in
bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla so they can be tracked.

Thanks,

Thanks.  The problem goes away after a tetex rebuild.  :-/  I'll look
into this.

I wanted to try the new Red Hat 7.0 with the DocBook
tools in there - it seems that the db2html stuff is
working fine, but generating db2pdf jams, due to PNG
images:

Jade begin document sequence at 19
No file bog.aux.

Any clues on which package that is broken?

Right. It's a TeX problem, not a DocBook problem.

The patch is not big and easy to read, so you can patch by hand. On the
contrary, if you get my file, it might break other things on your
machine.

You can find an updated and completed version of this tutorial at

	http://www.caldera.de/~eric/crash-course/HTML/index.html

It also has updated "hello world" examples in it.

The two -c and -d flags should not be necessary. But they ensure you use
"bare bones" Norman Walsh's stuff, and not our default stylesheet.

If you volunteer to update the web pages, to me you're welcome ;-).
Mark?

The 3.0 catalog has been auto-detected by the docbook-utils because
you're trying to render a 3.0 (outdated) document.
The 3.1 catalog is used because you specified it on the command line.
This tells you you should remove the "-c" argument that forces here to
use a wrong catalog.

TeX classical problem. The default configuration files do not allow
enough resources for docbook.

I think we have a corrected version on the web site. Attached is also a
patch we use at KDE.

No one of you seen that problem?

Can anyone help (guess) which package might be
broken. Which tool is used on Linux to convert png to
the format pdfjadetex can use?

Are you still having trouble with this in Red Hat Linux 7?

In general it's best to put things like this in

Okay,

I'm using the rpm's of the docbook tools. I did a clean install of RedHat
6.2, and followed the recommendation of the page at
http://i18n.kde.org/doc/install.html by de-installing the RPM's that ship
with RedHat and installing the following:

   docbook-dtd30-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-dtd31-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-dtd40-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-dtd41-sgml-1.0-6.noarch.rpm
   docbook-style-dsssl-1.57-2.noarch.rpm
   docbook-utils-0.5.5-1.noarch.rpm
   jade-1.2.1-6.i386.rpm
   jadetex-2.20-2.noarch.rpm
   perl-SGMLSpm-1.03ii-3.noarch.rpm
   sgml-common-0.3-1.noarch.rpm

I copied the simple "Hello World" example from
http://nis-www.lanl.gov/~rosalia/mydocs/docbook-intro/get-going.html#HELLO-WORLD
into a file called "helloworld.docbook". 

As people have mailed this list pointing out, the documentation on the
sources site is outdated, so I had to guess as to what flags would work
with the docbook utilities. Here's what I tried:

   docbook2pdf \
   ?  -c /usr/share/sgml/docbook/sgml-dtd-3.1/catalog \
   ?  -d /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.57/print/docbook.dsl
   helloworld.docbook

Is this right? I'd be happy to mail Mark Galassi a patch to the
http://sources.redhat.com/docbook-tools/ web page that documents how to
use the flags with the file locations where the RPM's put things if
someone can get me started on the right path.

Also, it seems like there is a problem actually producing a .pdf, here's
what I get:

   Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.0.cat,
   /usr/share/sgml/docbook/sgml-dtd-3.1/catalog
   Using stylesheet:
   /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.57/print/docbook.dsl
   Working on: /home/wbrooks/box/work/foo/helloworld.docbook
   This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
   (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)


...are other people able to get this working? 

Bill

Okay, I tried it again by just using the docbook2pdf helloworld.docbook
and still ran into some problems. Here's what I get with the same
helloworld document:

  docbook2pdf helloworld.docbook
  Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.0.cat
  Using stylesheet:
  /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.5.5/docbook-utils.dsl#print
  Working on: /home/wbrooks/box/work/foo/helloworld.docbook
  This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
  (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

So it looks like the correct version of the DTD and stylesheets are
getting used for this document, but it can't get pdfTeX to even begin
generating a .pdf file.

Absolutely, I can either mail a patch to the existing web page or change
something in a CVS repository somewhere.

My texmf.cnf file is substantially different than yours so applying the
patch failed. Can you send the whole file? Thanks in advance.

Could you at the same time make the adjustments to the
TeTex settings, so the buffers for pdfjadetex are much
higher. Standard problem with raw RH 6.2
latex/sgmltools stuff I had. The current settings I use
(big books) are found at
http://www.sslug.dk/~pto/texmf.cnf

and it would be nice to have Danish commented in - not
out in the file
/usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/config/language.dat :-)

3.1(!) DTD, 1.57 stylesheets, openjade 1.3.

(Yes, it needs sorting out.)

This is an excellent reason for encouraging them to switch to the new
packages. They will get more powerful tools with more recent versions of
the DTD, Jadetex and the style sheets. Mandrake and Caldera already did
jump to the new versions. I've been told a port is currently happening
at Debian too.

What you call "vanilla RedHat DocBook" are the old Cygnus packages, the
ones that you do not find in new-trials/. Basically, Mark Galassi did
the old ones, I found them great, and started enhancing them. This all
sounds like schizophreny: RedHat hosts the DocBook-tools project, but
they don't include yet the newest versions in their own distribution
:-).

This is quite simple to explain. KDE's documentation project leader is
named Eric Bischoff. It's the same guy who attempts to perfect Mark
Galassi's scripts ;-). If you go to ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/devel/docbook ,
you will find exactly the same packages as in
ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/docbook-tools/new-trials .

(the problem with the ISO entities in XML - fixed since yesterday).

(higher priority being support for Japanese, Korean and Chinese in

I'm doing the documentation for Caldera and we need to send PDF to the
printing company. So be sure it will get fixed sooner or later :-).
Meanwhile, you can use ps2pdf as a workaround. Have you already tried?

... which means they provide outdated DTDs and style sheets then, if I
understand correctly. If this is true, then it's not good. At cygnus you
can find:
- The 4.1 DTD in SGML and XML versions
- The 1.59 style sheets
- Jadetex version 2.20
Which versions does RedHat provide currently?

Basically, it's a TeX problem, not a DocBook one. If RedHat fixes it in
the DocBook package, then they are wrong, because it breaks the
principle of packages independancy that they themselves edicted. The
right thing is to fix it in TeX package. This way, it will both work for
old and new Cygnus packages.

BTW, Cygnus is owned by RedHat - I'm criticizing them here, but I must
also thank them for helping the DocBook-tools project by hosting it :-).

Having said that, I must recognize that I also have my part of
responsability. I took their old patch to texmf.cnf and found it too
violent, so I removed from it everything that I found not indispensable.
This was wrong, JadeTeX really needs *lots* of TeX ressources. But I
must also say that I never considered this patch as something official,
I was just sending it to people to help them.

Here is how we can fix it. Someone, please send me RedHat's texmf.cnf.
Then I will put the changes they did as a patch file somewhere on
Cygnus' site. And promised, I won't remove anything from it this time.
It will eat all your memory, folks, get prepared ;-).

Sorry for bringing this up again from the recent archives, but I am a newbie
on this list. 

I have exactly the same problem as Bill Brooks, and the suggested fix
doesn't work.

Éric Bischoff responded:

TeX classical problem. The default configuration files do not allow
enough resources for docbook.

I believe Eric's response is correct, but his patch to texmf.cnf doesn't
solve the problem since it updates only the jadetex parameters which are
already generous on Redhat 6.2 and not the critical pdfjadetex ones.

On my other box (running Debian potato where I do not have this problem with
pdfjadetex) I have the following jadetex and pdfjadtex parameters.

grep 'jadetex =' texmf.cnf
TEXINPUTS.jadetex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
TEXINPUTS.pdfjadetex = .;$TEXMF/{pdftex,tex}/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
pool_size.jadetex = 500000
pool_size.pdfjadetex = 500000
string_vacancies.jadetex = 45000
string_vacancies.pdfjadetex = 45000
max_strings.jadetex = 58500
max_strings.pdfjadetex = 58500
pool_free.jadetex = 47500
pool_free.pdfjadetex = 47500
nest_size.jadetex = 500
nest_size.pdfjadetex = 500
param_size.jadetex = 1504
param_size.pdfjadetex = 1504
save_size.jadetex = 10000
save_size.pdfjadetex = 10000
stack_size.jadetex = 1503
stack_size.pdfjadetex = 1503
extra_mem_bot.jadetex = 85000
extra_mem_bot.pdfjadetex = 8500
 
On my RH 6.2 box with exactly the same XML Cygnus system as Bill
(where I do have the pdfjadetex
problem) the parameters are

grep 'jadetex =' texmf.cnf
TEXINPUTS.jadetex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
TEXINPUTS.pdfjadetex = .;$TEXMF/{pdftex,tex}/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
hash_extra.jadetex = 25000
pool_size.jadetex = 750000
max_strings.jadetex = 55000
save_size.jadetex = 15000

So all the jadextex parameters that Eric recommended updating are already
quite generous on RH 6.2, but there are no pdfjadetex parameters at all so I
presume that takes the small default which causes the "I am stymied"
problem.

I will now copy the Debian parameters that work for pdfjadetex to texmf.cnf
on my RedHat box, but I don't know how to proceed from there.  Is there some
command I run to reconfigure everything to use the new parameters?

Both the Cygnus DocBook packages and vanilla RedHat DocBook run on RedHat.
But you have to clearly choose Cygnus or vanilla.  If you try both on RedHat
they will interfere with each other. 

I don't want to get into a DocBook distribution war here, but my impression is the
Cygnus tools are generally better than the vanilla RedHat ones.  For example,
Cygnus is recommended to build the KDE documentation, and I have had more
troubles with the vanilla version than the Cygnus version for my documentation
project.

But to take advantage of Cygnus you have to get the latest version.  For
example, there was an upgraded package today at
ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/docbook-tools/new-trials/RPMS that Eric
kindly prepared to fix another bug that I found.

The major problem with pdfjadetex hasn't been fixed yet, but Eric said on
this list that it is on his ToDo list.  He will have to delay looking at it
until another higher priority project was completed, but I am willing to
settle for that.

Debian has a reliable DocBook system where pdfjadetex (and everything else
for my documentation project) works reliably for me, but if you don't have
access to Debian, I think you are going to have to wait to build your pdf
documents on Cygnus (or else give the vanilla Redhat DocBook system a try to
see if you can work around other problems there.) While waiting for pdf on
Cygnus you can certainly validate your input by looking at html or
postscript output.

To answer my own question, apparently the command to use is fmtutil.  But to
recreate the *.fmt file one needs a *.ini file.  Eric, jadextex.ini and
pdfjadextex.ini are currently not included in the jadetex package.
Apparently, you also require configuration lines in fmtutil.cnf.  On my
Debian system these configuration lines are kept in a special location for
the jadetex package, and the whole special fmtutil.cnf is

# jadefmtutil.cnf: configuration file for fmtutil; jade flavor.
#                  invoke with 'fmtutil -cnffile <file>'
#
# format        engine  pattern-file    arguments
jadetex         tex     language.dat    &latex jadetex.ini
pdfjadetex      pdftex  language.dat    &pdflatex pdfjadetex.ini

Eric, could you please provide this special configuration file and
jadetex.ini and pdfjadetex.ini with the Cygnus jadetex package?  Without it
I don't believe we can change the sizes of anything with the ftmutil
command. (I have tried fmtutil --all, and it redoes every *.fmt file
*except* for jadetex.fmt and pdfjadetex.fmt, and I believe the cause is
these missing files from your jadetex package.

Thanks in advance.

BTW: Is it planned for the "new-trials" packages to move from
jade-1.2.1 to openjade-1.3?

The compiler in RedHat 7 does not compile jade-1.2.1 out of the box
and I double the official gcc-3 will, when it is
realeased. Historcially newer versions of gcc have always broken the
out of the box compilation for jade.

Sorry for the late follow-up. Yes, the suggested fix didn't work for me
either. 

I really wonder what the developers of the Cygnus docbook tool chain are
using...if it doesn't work on RedHat, what will it work on? 

I filed a bug report about this with RedHat and their support person
mailed me back saying that the ones that ship with 6.2 work...the new
RPM's on the old cygnus site aren't supported.

I haven't the time for this right now. If someone wants to do it, then fine, 
he can send me the resulting source package, and I will integrate it to the 
others (we will need a Provide: virtual capability to be able to use 
indifferently one or the other package) but I won't do it.

It compiles out of the box on my LinuxPPC. For Caldera, I had to do a patch 
against gcc, that's true, but now it works. Another solution would be to test 
this patch on a vanilla RedHat. Volunteers please mail in private.

This is an excellent reason for encouraging them to switch to the new
packages. They will get more powerful tools with more recent versions of
the DTD, Jadetex and the style sheets. Mandrake and Caldera already did
jump to the new versions. I've been told a port is currently happening
at Debian too.

What you call "vanilla RedHat DocBook" are the old Cygnus packages, the
ones that you do not find in new-trials/. Basically, Mark Galassi did
the old ones, I found them great, and started enhancing them. This all
sounds like schizophreny: RedHat hosts the DocBook-tools project, but
they don't include yet the newest versions in their own distribution
:-).

This is quite simple to explain. KDE's documentation project leader is
named Eric Bischoff. It's the same guy who attempts to perfect Mark
Galassi's scripts ;-). If you go to ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/devel/docbook ,
you will find exactly the same packages as in
ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/docbook-tools/new-trials .

(the problem with the ISO entities in XML - fixed since yesterday).

(higher priority being support for Japanese, Korean and Chinese in
printed output).

I'm doing the documentation for Caldera and we need to send PDF to the
printing company. So be sure it will get fixed sooner or later :-).
Meanwhile, you can use ps2pdf as a workaround. Have you already tried?

3.1(!) DTD, 1.57 stylesheets, openjade 1.3.

(Yes, it needs sorting out.)

... which means they provide outdated DTDs and style sheets then, if I
understand correctly. If this is true, then it's not good. At cygnus you
can find:
- The 4.1 DTD in SGML and XML versions
- The 1.59 style sheets
- Jadetex version 2.20
Which versions does RedHat provide currently?

Basically, it's a TeX problem, not a DocBook one. If RedHat fixes it in
the DocBook package, then they are wrong, because it breaks the
principle of packages independancy that they themselves edicted. The
right thing is to fix it in TeX package. This way, it will both work for
old and new Cygnus packages.

BTW, Cygnus is owned by RedHat - I'm criticizing them here, but I must
also thank them for helping the DocBook-tools project by hosting it :-).

Having said that, I must recognize that I also have my part of
responsability. I took their old patch to texmf.cnf and found it too
violent, so I removed from it everything that I found not indispensable.
This was wrong, JadeTeX really needs *lots* of TeX ressources. But I
must also say that I never considered this patch as something official,
I was just sending it to people to help them.

Here is how we can fix it. Someone, please send me RedHat's texmf.cnf.
Then I will put the changes they did as a patch file somewhere on
Cygnus' site. And promised, I won't remove anything from it this time.
It will eat all your memory, folks, get prepared ;-).

Both the Cygnus DocBook packages and vanilla RedHat DocBook run on RedHat.
But you have to clearly choose Cygnus or vanilla.  If you try both on RedHat
they will interfere with each other. 

I don't want to get into a DocBook distribution war here, but my impression is the
Cygnus tools are generally better than the vanilla RedHat ones.  For example,
Cygnus is recommended to build the KDE documentation, and I have had more
troubles with the vanilla version than the Cygnus version for my documentation
project.

But to take advantage of Cygnus you have to get the latest version.  For
example, there was an upgraded package today at
ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/docbook-tools/new-trials/RPMS that Eric
kindly prepared to fix another bug that I found.

The major problem with pdfjadetex hasn't been fixed yet, but Eric said on
this list that it is on his ToDo list.  He will have to delay looking at it
until another higher priority project was completed, but I am willing to
settle for that.

Debian has a reliable DocBook system where pdfjadetex (and everything else
for my documentation project) works reliably for me, but if you don't have
access to Debian, I think you are going to have to wait to build your pdf
documents on Cygnus (or else give the vanilla Redhat DocBook system a try to
see if you can work around other problems there.) While waiting for pdf on
Cygnus you can certainly validate your input by looking at html or
postscript output.

Sorry for the late follow-up. Yes, the suggested fix didn't work for me
either. 

I really wonder what the developers of the Cygnus docbook tool chain are
using...if it doesn't work on RedHat, what will it work on? 

I filed a bug report about this with RedHat and their support person
mailed me back saying that the ones that ship with 6.2 work...the new
RPM's on the old cygnus site aren't supported.

To answer my own question, apparently the command to use is fmtutil.  But to
recreate the *.fmt file one needs a *.ini file.  Eric, jadextex.ini and
pdfjadextex.ini are currently not included in the jadetex package.
Apparently, you also require configuration lines in fmtutil.cnf.  On my
Debian system these configuration lines are kept in a special location for
the jadetex package, and the whole special fmtutil.cnf is

# jadefmtutil.cnf: configuration file for fmtutil; jade flavor.
#                  invoke with 'fmtutil -cnffile <file>'
#
# format        engine  pattern-file    arguments
jadetex         tex     language.dat    &latex jadetex.ini
pdfjadetex      pdftex  language.dat    &pdflatex pdfjadetex.ini

Eric, could you please provide this special configuration file and
jadetex.ini and pdfjadetex.ini with the Cygnus jadetex package?  Without it
I don't believe we can change the sizes of anything with the ftmutil
command. (I have tried fmtutil --all, and it redoes every *.fmt file
*except* for jadetex.fmt and pdfjadetex.fmt, and I believe the cause is
these missing files from your jadetex package.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for bringing this up again from the recent archives, but I am a newbie
on this list. 

I have exactly the same problem as Bill Brooks, and the suggested fix
doesn't work.

Éric Bischoff responded:

TeX classical problem. The default configuration files do not allow
enough resources for docbook.

I believe Eric's response is correct, but his patch to texmf.cnf doesn't
solve the problem since it updates only the jadetex parameters which are
already generous on Redhat 6.2 and not the critical pdfjadetex ones.

On my other box (running Debian potato where I do not have this problem with
pdfjadetex) I have the following jadetex and pdfjadtex parameters.

grep 'jadetex =' texmf.cnf
TEXINPUTS.jadetex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
TEXINPUTS.pdfjadetex = .;$TEXMF/{pdftex,tex}/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
pool_size.jadetex = 500000
pool_size.pdfjadetex = 500000
string_vacancies.jadetex = 45000
string_vacancies.pdfjadetex = 45000
max_strings.jadetex = 58500
max_strings.pdfjadetex = 58500
pool_free.jadetex = 47500
pool_free.pdfjadetex = 47500
nest_size.jadetex = 500
nest_size.pdfjadetex = 500
param_size.jadetex = 1504
param_size.pdfjadetex = 1504
save_size.jadetex = 10000
save_size.pdfjadetex = 10000
stack_size.jadetex = 1503
stack_size.pdfjadetex = 1503
extra_mem_bot.jadetex = 85000
extra_mem_bot.pdfjadetex = 8500
 
On my RH 6.2 box with exactly the same XML Cygnus system as Bill
(where I do have the pdfjadetex
problem) the parameters are

grep 'jadetex =' texmf.cnf
TEXINPUTS.jadetex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
TEXINPUTS.pdfjadetex = .;$TEXMF/{pdftex,tex}/{jadetex,plain,generic,}//
hash_extra.jadetex = 25000
pool_size.jadetex = 750000
max_strings.jadetex = 55000
save_size.jadetex = 15000

So all the jadextex parameters that Eric recommended updating are already
quite generous on RH 6.2, but there are no pdfjadetex parameters at all so I
presume that takes the small default which causes the "I am stymied"
problem.

I will now copy the Debian parameters that work for pdfjadetex to texmf.cnf
on my RedHat box, but I don't know how to proceed from there.  Is there some
command I run to reconfigure everything to use the new parameters?
