## spectacular ly2dvi failure

 From: Chris Lipe Subject: spectacular ly2dvi failure Date: Sat, 04 May 2002 03:28:46 -0400 User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20011126 Netscape6/6.2.1

Hello,

I am running Red Hat Linux 7.2, and lilypond version 1.4.11-1. I'm trying to compile a moderately large piece (75 measures of full band score), and I get the following error when invoking ly2dvi:

Analyzing default.tex...
Running LaTeX...
error: latex: command exited with value 256
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 850, in ?

File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 234, in system

File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 132, in error
raise _ ("Exiting ... ")
Exiting ...
I get a .tex file out of this, but it's never more than the first four or five
pages or so of the score.  I can compile the woodwinds, the saxes, and the
brass all separately, and they work beautifully, giving me the entire .ps file
I want, but when I try to compile the whole score at once, it goes splat.  I
still get a .tex file, but if I try to turn that into a .dvi, I get only three,
somtimes four pages of the score.

If I try invoking lilypond instead of ly2dvi, I get a .tex file without too
much complaint, but when I run tex on that to get a dvi file, I get the
following output:

Output written on default.dvi (9 pages, 507964 bytes).
Transcript written on default.log.

Here I have 9 pages of the score, but that's still a couple pages short (it's
about 12 pages long).

There are a handful of warnings I get when compiling either way, but there's nothing that's fatal; mostly "putting slur over rest", or some inexplicable complaints about beaming. Something very odd about this: if I compile the entire score with ly2dvi, it finds a whole bunch of failed bar checks (which I can't verify by looking at the score, because it inevitably stops right before the measure in question), but compiling smaller parts of the score with ly2dvi (either the last 3/4 of the score, full band, or the whole score, one section at a time), or the entire score with lilypond, there are no failed bar checks.
I'm not sure what's going on here, and I really can't get enough output out of
ly2dvi to figure it out.  Both the .ly file involved and the log of error
messages are rather lengthy; I can provide them if necessary.  Does anyone have
any ideas to help me out?  Thanks.

Yeah, the theater was crowded, and yeah, there was clearly a fire, but I sat quietly and watched that movie. After all, rules are rules.
