Quarto segfaults when using Workbench


When using Posit Workbench, if you use a User or Group profiles to set less than 8(eight) GB of memory - like this example:

# /etc/rstudio/profile
max-memory-mb = 2048


Your Quarto users will see segfault errors:

/usr/local/bin/quarto: line 148: 138431 Segmentation fault (core dumped) 


This is a known issue, unfortunately caused by the Quarto dependency v8 requiring 8GB of memory to start.


The solution is to make sure that the in the profile is set to 8GB or above:

# /etc/rstudio/profile
max-memory-mb = 8192
