mkisofs 2.01.01.0.a09-0 incorrectly reports "Value too large for defined data type." on small files
Last modified: 2013-01-09 22:53:18 EST
Description of problem:
$ ls -l
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wes wes 0 Jun 1 22:24 foo
$ mkisofs -print-size .
INFO: UTF-8 character encoding detected by locale settings.
Assuming UTF-8 encoded filenames on source filesystem,
use -input-charset to override.
Unknown file type (unallocated) ./.. - ignoring and continuing.
mkisofs: Value too large for defined data type. File ./foo is too large - ignoring
Total extents scheduled to be written = 174
That was just a simple example, but it flags just about every file with the
"Value too large"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mkisofs-2.01.01.0.a09-0.FC5.1.i386.rpm, currently in updates-testing
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do anything with mkisofs--I can't *not* reproduce it
backing off to a03-3 that shipped with FC5 works fine.
Maybe this is related to the somewhat vague bug 191860
