fuser can't handle large files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:54 EST
Description of problem:
The fuser command can't handle files larger than 2 GB. This is the
same bug reported on #66340 but is occurring on RHEL AS 2.1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a large file
dd if=/dev/null of=foo bs=1 seek=2150000000
2. Use the file
tail -f foo
3. Call fuser in another process
The fuser command prints the following warning:
foo: Value too large for defined data type
If the file is in use, fuser should display a PID.
Otherwise, it should have no output.
It should be compiled with large file support by adding `getconf
LFS_CFLAGS` to CFLAGS.
