Description Marizol Martinez 2004-03-25 10:57:08 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):

How reproducible:

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
   /sbin/fuser foo
Actual Results:  

The fuser command prints the following warning:

  foo: Value too large for defined data type

Expected Results:  

If the file is in use, fuser should display a PID. 
Otherwise, it should have no output.

Additional Info:

It should be compiled with large file support by adding `getconf
