Description David Huff 2008-09-23 14:05:37 EDT
Description of problem:
2GB filesize limit using zip format

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Think we hit a 2GB filesize limit using zip format for appliance-creator. Other than that all else seems to work. One last thing, the man page is missing the package option

 File "/usr/bin/appliance-creator", line 122, in <module>
 File "/usr/bin/appliance-creator", line 112, in main
   creator.package()     File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/imgcreate/", line 747, in package
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/appcreate/", line 368, in _stage_final_image
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/appcreate/", line 347, in _package_image
   z.write(file, arcname=os.path.basename(file), compress_type=None)
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 561, in write
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 533, in _writecheck
   raise LargeZipFile("Filesize would require ZIP64 extensions")
zipfile.LargeZipFile: Filesize would require ZIP64 extensions 

Expected results:
