Description Bastien Nocera 2006-06-22 04:58:49 EDT

When the CVS history file gets bigger than 2GB, cvs checkouts and other
operations on the server fail with a "File size limit exceeded" error.

The fix (verified) is adding the following line to the .spec before the make:

$ cat filler.c
#include <stdio.h>

  FILE *fp;
  fp = fopen("/var/cvs/CVSROOT/history","a+");
  while (1) fprintf(fp,"A448ee4ee|marco|~/cvstest|testprj|1.1|hello.txt\n");

$ mkdir /var/cvs
$ mkdir /var/cvs/testprj
$ export CVSROOT=/var/cvs
$ mkdir cvstest && cd cvstest
$ cvs init
$ mkdir testprj
$ echo "hello world" > testprj/hello.txt
$ cvs checkout testprj/
$ cvs add testprj/hello.txt
$ cvs commit -m "test"
$ gcc filler.c -o filler
$ ./filler
File size limit exceeded
$ cvs commit -m "test"
cvs commit: Examining testprj
RCS file: /var/cvs/testprj/edge.txt,v
Checking in testprj/edge.txt;
/var/cvs/testprj/edge.txt,v  <--  edge.txt
