comment Missing characters when printing in linux
Well, if I include a particular package in the latex preamble, the phi does not print, but also the font changes to a different font (which prints fine). Interestingly, if I use latex to compile the tex file to a dvi instead of a pdf, it prints no problem even with the "bad" version of phi.

comment Missing characters when printing in linux
So to figure out what font that specific character was I recompiled the pdf using the same pdflatex preamble, but only left the single character in the document. The only font listed also shows up in the original pdf, thus I conclude that it is indeed the correct one. Anyway, it is listed as "StandardSymL-Slant_167" it is a Type 1 embedded subset font.

I'll look into that... but why does it show up in the pdf readers, and how can pdftops convert correctly if I am missing fonts?

comment pipe: too many files open renders entire OS completely useless
This did indeed seem to be the case. After running top in one terminal while very carefully starting up the same processes that caused the crash to happen, I was able to see a process with a definite memory leak. I'm still not sure why I was getting the too many files warning i.e. I'm not sure how it was spawning many child processes. However, fixing the leak appears to have solved the problem. Thanks for the help!

What I meant to say was that I did not increase it past the default beforehand. I have not yet increased it after the crash had occurred. I will try to do that and report back.
