NFSv2 can only do 32-bit file sizes. Make sure you're using NFSv3 mounts (which should be the default). > Even copying the file from one machine to the other > is proving a challenge!

Sounds like Gentoo's ftp client and server daemons weren't compiled with large file support. Linux requires that you compile with -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE, or else you can't access files over 2GB. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
