But when I chance -qm to -qh I get this. (See below) What can I do? What is the problem? I work on a MacOSX 10.4.11 G5, 8GB RAM, 2x 2,5Ghz. Thank you.
Rev cache RAM = 2770 Mbytes There is 1 rev cache instance with 2770 Mbytes limit4%colprof(16553) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=8421376) failed (error code=3)colprof(16553) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region colprof(16553) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug/Volumes/RAID-5/Argyll_V1.0.3/bin/colprof: Error - rspl malloc failed - reverse cell simplexes - base simplex
There is a known issue on systems with large amounts of RAM, in that they may run out of virtual memory space, and a malloc unexpectedly fails. You could try working around the problem by setting the environment variable ARGYLL_REV_CACHE_MULT to something less than 1.0 (ie. try 0.7), and see if that helps.
