mke2fs does not have large file support

Postby bmcclure » 09 Sep 2014, 14:50

When I try to use the included mke2fs on an 8GB file, I get an error "Value too large for defined data type."

This seems to be the same problem reported in RedHat bug 1099892 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1099892), though it was reported as not affecting fedora, only rawhide.

Is it possible for the next version of sysresccd to include a mke2fs with large file support?
