Precreating tiled data (aka offline maps)

for a relative with really crappy internet connection I want to precreate tiled data.

I've found [1] and followed its description using latest master on debian stretch.

My exact command is

./sources/build/tools/vectorosm-tilecreator/marble-vectorosm-tilecreator -z XXX

But I got stuck at several fronts:
- Any zoom level smaller than 10 crashes with [2]
- For levels greater equal 10 I get
 [========>                                ]   20% Creating osm cache tile 286/1370 (9/267/174)    "osmconvert Error: file empty: cache/germany-latest/osm/8/133/87.o5m\n"
osmconvert failed:  "Unknown error"
and all files in cache/* are empty.

I'm using osmconvert 0.8.8.

Am I doing something wrong? I've tried working with local osm.pbf files but this works even worse.

I do know that this will take a lot of disc space, but I can spare a couple of TB.

Is there a different command/tool available? I would prefer precreating the cache compared to setting up some local tile server.

Thanks a lot for reading that far,
