File size exceeded - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hello everyone, I'm trying to back my MySQL file and they have grown quite a bit... I'm running in the "file size exceeded" when trying to run tar/zip/gzip/bzip2 on them. I've Googled quite a bit on this one and saw a few hints but nothing seems to apply to my scenario... I checked /etc/security/limits.conf and everything is commented out. I also checked the output of ulimit -f and it says the size is unlimited. I'm running a kernel in the 2.4 flavor on an ext3 filesystem. Any ideas? Thanks, P...

    Default File size exceeded

    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to back my MySQL file and they have grown quite a bit... I'm
    running in the "file size exceeded" when trying to run tar/zip/gzip/bzip2 on
    them.

    I've Googled quite a bit on this one and saw a few hints but nothing seems
    to apply to my scenario... I checked /etc/security/limits.conf and
    everything is commented out. I also checked the output of ulimit -f and it
    says the size is unlimited. I'm running a kernel in the 2.4 flavor on an
    ext3 filesystem.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    P

    Hum, yes it dies when it reaches about 2G. Is that a limit of the ext2/ext3
    filesystem? :o(

    Well, I can read this in the software's doc:
    "The linux 2.2 kernel does not support files larger than 2 GB, so the size
    of your image must not exceed this limit. You can solve this problem using
    the 2.4 kernel, which doesn't have this limitation. You can also split your
    image into small files (of 1,9 GB for example). You also require a recent
    glibc version: 2.2 or newer."

    Basically this means that I should not be running into the problems I run
    into at this moment... Could it be caused by glibc alone being to old?

    Regards,
    Patrick

    Yes they are. I thought this was a limit of the 2.2 kernel and not an
    issue with the 2.4 kernel. I'm not sure I see what you are trying to tell me
    here. ;o)

    Yup. This is why "I'll just update that widget and everything will work with
    the new capabilities" often fails, because there are other dependencies. For
    something as fundamental as the maximum file size, it's a serious issue....

    Well, I checked and it turns out my system is running glibc 2.3.2-4.80.6 so
    it SHOULD be able to avoid the 2G filesize limit... Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Patrick
