I am trying to convert this PDF - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/54234954/dg84_alex.pdf to SVG using this command:
Code: Select all
inkscape -z -f dg84_alex.pdf -l dg84_alex.svg
After executing for a while, the application gets killed and I see these system logs:
[ 3578.301798] Out of memory: Kill process 27266 (inkscape) score 732 or sacrifice child
[ 3578.301806] Killed process 27266 (inkscape) total-vm:3174032kB, anon-rss:2893840kB, file-rss:60kB
My system specs:
root@XXXX.XXXX.XXXX.XXXX:~/tests# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 3748 1013 2735 12 16 109
-/+ buffers/cache: 886 2861
Swap: 0 0 0
I have two questions:
1 Could there be some content in the PDF that's causing the program to run into some kind of loop, thus taking up memory, or is the system's available memory not enough for this PDF/SVG? We did see some issues with some text content in the PDF.
2. Does the command line have an option (like the GUI) to link image sin the PDF, rather than embed them?
