viewer pdf cant read a big document

when i openned a big pdf file ( perhaps over 100 pages ) the following error occured :

The Application "evince" has quit unexpectedly.

You can inform the developers of what happened to help them fix it. Or you can restart the application right now.

so what problem of that and how solve it

Did you try any other big PDF file? Maybe it just uses some PDF feature in a way that crashes evince.. The bigger a file is, the higher are chances that any given unexpected condition occurs. Have you tried xpdf or gv? Maybe they will be able to give a meaningful error, or even display the file.. Maybe pdf2ps + ps2pdf will create a more friendly PDF file with the same contents..
