    STLinux Samba 4GB Limit


    Hi,

    files > 4GB are not completely copied form STLinux to Windows XP (NTFS Partition supporing files > 4 GB).

    Is a 4GB Limit in this STLinux samba daemon?
    smbd version 2.2.9 started.

    Where can I get a working samba daemon for SH4 processor under STLinux supporting files > 4 GB?

    Edit:
    download of files > 4 GB by ftp works fine.

    I'd look into updating to samba3. Second you may check on your file size limits.
    Code:
    ulimit -a
    Oh, and maybe Large File Support (lfs)

    you could also check to see if you are using
    Code:
    protocol = LANMAN2
    i've read it causes problems here ([ubuntu] [SOLVED] Samba file size issues after installing 8.04 - Ubuntu Forums)

    Unfortunately, everything I've read thus far is saying that samba 2.x has filesize limitations built into it. Of couse all these sources are saying their around the 2GB area.

    Are you experiencing problems with only >4GB files? Or does it crap out at 2GB, 3GB?

    Files < 2 GB work fine. I did not test files between 2 GB and 5 GB. Copying 5 GB file from Linux results in a 1 GB file.

    If samba 2.x has filsize limitations i should use samba 3.x.

    On samba dot org in www (posting url is forbidden) is no samba 3 binary for STLinux. Where can I find it?

    Thanks for your help.
