Re: File size limit exceeded for files > 2GB
when creating files bigger than 2GB I get error "File size limit
I use woody, kernel 2.6.7, libc6 2.3.2.ds1-13, and this is the output
from ulimit -a:
core file size (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited
file size (blocks, -f) unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 32768
max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files (-n) 1024
pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8
stack size (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes (-u) 10239
virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited
I can't get the solution to this problem.
Have I to recompile the utilities ( scp, ftp and so on ) against new
kernel headers? ( hope this is not necessary).
Ok, solution found.
I recompiled the ftp and scp utilities, ans this (tried ftp on 6GB file,
scp on 2.2 GB) just worked ok...now i've my 6GB backup on my Debian.
Thanks Stefan, I thought i had to recompile, your hint definitively
pointed it out.
Thanks John too: I only moved a monolitic 2.6 kernel on this woody,
which is our production environment, everything else is original woody :).
