[netatalk] free disk space reported incorrectly to clients
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
free disk space is reported incorrectly to clients, probably due
to netatalk not being entirely 64 bit clean. patch might need
to be applied to RPM:
also, I sometimes get MacOS 8 clients disconnecting from server during
file transfer and then creating huge files on the server side, until
all disk space fills up. I believe this is fixed in newer asun
patches, could these patches also be applied to the RPM?

Found this in README.ASUN, is it relevant?
ADDITIONAL NOTE: gcc sometimes has problems with 64-bit ints. if you get
inaccurate volume sizes, compile etc/afpd/volume.c without optimization.
This morning I recompiled afpd
from the netatalk package with optimization off when compiling volume.c
(ie, I did a gcc without -O2) and it worked a treat. So I think there's
probably some strange gcc optimizations with this file.
Regarding the other problem (Mac client starts to copy file
over, then disconnects, and then server continues to create a huge garbage
file until all disk space used up) here is a mail on the netatalk mailing
I can't ship the 2.1.4 stuff since asun explicitly has requested distros not do
that until it has been declared stable.
The other problem concerning -O2 has been solved though. It should show up in
