Dear Thomas,

I'm sorry for all the shortcomings of my question. I'll try to be more
concrete. If you won't download my file, could you at least give me a hint
on how to configure LMTX?

I Tried editing the file context/tex/texmf/web2c/texmfcnf.lua, and running
context --generate, context --make, but the error persists. I'm new to
context and I don't know how to configure this file. Running --usage
reveals in the log that the category "token" is exceeded. I tried the
aforementioned editing of the conf file, but the log stays the same.
