File size limit
When I try to make files bigger then 2GB I get this error: "File size limit exceeded"
If I type ulimit in consol I get unlimited in return so I don't know what the problem is.
Does anyone know how to change the limit?
I use Mandrake 10.0.
This is interesting, I thought a single file could not exceed 2GB when using a 32Bit processor.
But on the bootloader, with Mandrake10, there is an option that had to do with 4GB file size (I might be wrong, I am currently at work).
Anyways, give that boot option a try and see what happens...
I was sure though, that 2GB was a limit with 32Bit procs...(?)

arnoadam: this topic has been coverd recently and extensivly. use the forum search function to find the topic. Anyway.. the file size limmit depends on the filesystem you are useing.. recent versions of reiserfs support filesizes up to and over 15 petabytes older versions may be restricted to below 2gb.. i dont know if ext2/3 supports very large files. As I said, all of this is coverd extensivly in annother topic!
