Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: how to convert DocBook files to PS files?

First off, I'm no jadetex guru, but apparently this is a pretty common problem. Below the signature, I've quoted the long description that comes with jadetex on FreeBSD. It suggests TeX resource pool settings necessary to format the FreeBSD Handbook.

Using the settings given below, I've successfully produced 100+ pages of PostScript with 30 EPS figures and not bumped into any limits. I'd guess we have Nik Clayton to thank for the advice. MYYV-esp. when it comes to paths that may be FreeBSD-specific.


JadeTeX uses quite a lot of TeX's resources.  You may find it
necessary to increase the size of some of TeX's resource pools by
editing the file /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf with any text

For example, to typeset the FreeBSD Handbook with JadeTeX, change the
following settings to the listed values:

          hash_extra = 60000
          pool_size = 1000000
          max_strings = 70000
          save_size = 10000

If you change /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf, delete the word
"original" on line 1 of the file.  This will prevent future
installations of TeX from overwriting changes you've made.

I wasn't able to convert my file to PS format using sgmltools.
jadetex, which is called by sgmltools, reported "capacity exceeded".
This error happened even when I process the smallest DocBook file.

Does any one know how to generate PS files from DocBook sgml document?
