Description taher21 2000-02-14 18:55:31 EST
It's a well known limit: the linux kernel on 32-bit i386 architecture
imposes a 2GB limit on file size, regardless of the filesystem used.  I am
hoping this limit will be removed.

Our current enterprise kernels include the lfs patches, and
the 2.4 kernel series supports the lfs standard by default.
