I have two similar servers with centos 5. One is a development server one production. both use standard packages manged with yum. I would like to continue using standard packages
the convert command is behaving behaving differently between the servers. the production server gives me a memory allocation error while converting monochrome tif to pdf.
the dev server the one that works has 1 gig of memory
the production server has 4 gig
convert test.tif test.pdf
convert: Memory allocation failed `test.pdf'.
the command works with smaller images. the images I want to convert are monochrome scans of documents. group4 compression
I did try passing some options to convert which seemed to make not difference, also it is not unnecessary on the dev system. the dev system does create a monochrome compressed pdf without passing any options
convert test.tif -monochrome -compress Group4 -quality 100 -units PixelsPerInch -density 600 test2.pdf
Am I missing some package that conversion to pdf uses?
