I have a problem creating thumbnail of some large file: $ thumbnail 0-large.tif 0-large-thumb.tif rastersize=2069060000 0-large.tif: Can't allocate space for raster buffer..

Is there a way, ho to solve it?

Either switch to a 64-bit operating system, compile the software as a 64-bit application, and buy a lot of RAM, or consider using software like GraphicsMagick (http://www.GraphicsMagick.org/) which uses disk to emulate memory.
