### How do I set the value for dest_names_size?

Hello, everyone.

I am compiling a rather huge(9Mb) .tex file with lualatex.

The file consists of 5 chapters, and each chapter seems to get compiled fine.

However, when I run lualatex the full file, I am getting an error:

`! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [number of destination names (dest_names_size)=131072].\AtBegShi@Output ...ipout \box \AtBeginShipoutBox                                                   \fi \fi l.137656                                  clauses)) 69764 words of node memory still in use:   2259 hlist, 7 vlist, 506 rule, 56 local_par, 1 dir, 116 math, 2785 glue, 893 kern, 166 penalty, 1599 glyph, 1745 attribute, 84 glue_spec, 1745 attribute_list, 2 temp, 10 if_stack, 2 shape, 56 pdf_dest, 8 pdf_action, 4 pdf_colorstack nodes   avail lists: 1:2,2:7549,3:756,4:33,5:143550,6:10,7:5698,8:73,9:3823,10:14,11:156!  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!`

What I tried to do:

locate texmf.cnf only gave me one result: /usr/share/texmf-dist/web2c/texmf.cnf

dest_names_size = 1000000
to the end of this file and running texhash, but this doesn't seem to change anything.

What is the proper way to set dest_names_size?

Line l.137656 is about a half of the document, so I only need to increase it three times.

The document is basically a lot of code listings printed out for archival purposes.

UPD:

For some reason this doesn't happen with XeLaTeX, only with luaLaTeX.
