I'm using export utility to generate a .osm (xml map file) of an area, to later generate a .map file with osmosis, but i can't extract the .osm because i got this error:

"You requested too many nodes (limit is 50000). Either request a smaller area, or use planet.osm"

How can i generate maps of more than 50.000 nodes? how to use planet.osm? i'm blocked :S

See the wiki sections on Extracts and Osmosis to find out how to download an extract covering the area you want (I tend to use the Geofabrik ones) and Osmosis to cut out the area you want.

If you have spain.osm.pbf the next step is to get Osmosis running. You will need command line options something like: --read-pbf file=spain.osm.pbf --bounding-box top=41.499 left=1.982 bottom=41.238 right=2.349 --write-osm file=barcelona.osm Though you might want to check the top/left/bottom/right are where you want them.
