Please consider the following command for the imagemagick package:
sudo convert -resize 460x200 /path/to/test1.jpg /path/to/test2.jpg
No error is being thrown, and yet no
test2.jpg is being created. I have tested this with smaller images and it works fine. I would have thought 1G if memory would be plenty to manage a resize, but perhaps not?
What are my options, do I have to get more memory or am I missing something?
Any suggestions are very welcome!
strace output shows:
+++ killed by SIGKILL +++ along with alot of commands that look normal (opening
/usr/share/local and reading long strings, which I assume is image data)
free gives me:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1016292 278348 737944 6412 460 13356
-/+ buffers/cache: 264532 751760
Swap: 0 0 0
So it looks as if swap is not enabled, so I will look into creating a swapfile to see if this sorts my issues.
File gives me:
testprint10Mbv2.jpg: JPEG image data, EXIF standard
I would also paste the full /path/to/img but unfortunately it contains sensitive data (client email addresses etc)
