Description clive darra 2006-07-17 05:47:52 EDT
Description of problem:
unzip has not been compiled with large file support and cannot unzip files > 2G

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get a 850M zip file that SHOULD unzip to 2.8G 
for example http://www.foresightlinux.com/ vmware vmdk downloaded from
http://www.rpath.org/rbuilder/project/foresight/release?id=3584 [^]
2. unzip bigfile.zip
Actual results:

Expected results:
All 2.8G should be unzipped with no error

Additional info:
In the unzip unix makefile find the section begining

# Linux on 386 platform, using the assembler replacement for crc32.c. (-O4 and
# -fno-strength-reduce have virtually no effect beyond -O3. Add "-m486
# -malign-functions=2 -malign-jumps=2 -malign-loops=2" for Pentium [Pro]
# systems.)
linux: unix_make

then find the line
         CF="-O3 -Wall -I. -DASM_CRC $(LOC)"\

and replace it with

The original bug mentions RHEL3 and RHEL4.
The advisory only mentions RHEL4.
Any plans to release an update for RHEL3?

RHEL5 x86 also has this bug, could you please fix and update for RHEL5?

Hello, please could you create a separate by for RHEL5.
