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 (, 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?
