Excuse me: you want me to download a huge file, from an unknown author, 
that may or may not contain all sorts of things. You want me to compile 
this file on my computer. To obtain an error message that you could have 
mentioned in your first message. Why? Why don't you search the list 
archives with the key words "enlarge capacity"? I still don't understand 
what you expect us to do.
