Today I re-tried this with newer Grass 6.1 CVS, newer system (Ubuntu
Breezy) and sqlite 3.3.2, on the same machine. This time v.out.ogr
using sqlite performed much better. I don't know what is the reason
that now it works. Couple of things changed in my setup. Here's a
summary of what I recall that changed between the two scenarios:
SCENARIO 1, 22 Nov 2005:
Ubuntu 5.04 Hoary
Grass 6.1 CVS 2005-11-16
Symptoms: v.out.ogr failed to export a 173863 vector lines layer. At
'80%' system became was completely non responsive. There wasn't any
progress. Had to reboot.
SCENARIO 2, 05 Feb 2006:
Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy
Grass 6.1 CVS 2006-02-01
Symptoms: v.out.ogr managed to export a 173863 vector lines
layer. The 100% was achieved within about 5 minutes, memory use
remained fairly small until then. However, before the whole export was
accomplished it took 90 minutes more, while memory and swap were used
100% all that time. What's nice though, is that the system remained
responsive even then, only it was slow (considering 100% swap and
memory use it was a rocket though ;)).
