From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Description of problem:
Files larger than 2GB won't show up in an autoindex directory listing.
If I try to retrieve the file using its explicit URL, I get the
following error message:
(75)Value too large for defined data type: access to [whatever
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a file larger than 2GB in a directory
2. Set 'Options +Indexes' on that directory
3. Don't see the file.
Actual Results: The large file does not appear in the directory listing
Expected Results: You should see the file
I suspect that Apache needs to be build with O_LARGEFILE. This bug
may be fixed in a later Apache version, as well... I could not confirm
Thanks for the report.
Unfortunately, Apache httpd 2.0 does not have large file support, so
on 32-bit platforms, files larger than 2Gb cannot be served. Adding
large file support breaks the binary module interface, so this cannot
be done in a stable release series such as 2.0.x.
We have fixed the problem upstream for the future httpd 2.2 releases,
so this issue will be fixed in a future version of RHEL.
