Description Jose Plans 2006-06-01 07:16:30 EDT
Hi Tim,
 This customer reported the following issue: When using dos2unix against a
plain/text file bigger than 2Gb the command stops at the very begining reporting :

 [root@elyacin home]# ll -h mnt/
 total 2.3G
 drwx------    2 root     root          16K Jun  1 11:15 lost+found
 -rw-r--r--    1 root     root         2.2G Jun  1 11:32 text.txt
 [root@elyacin home]# dos2unix mnt/text.txt
  dos2unix: converting file mnt/text.txt to UNIX format ...
  dos2unix: problems converting file mnt/text.txt

This is fixed by adding in the SPEC file the support for large filesystems.
