It is size of offset. I went thru the code and did not see any other problem there. However, how you mentioned it need more testing. I going to take server with large disk array and I will test it.I would like to add --enable-largefile switch to configure file to enable access to wide group of users. What you think about it?Yeah, I was going to suggest the same thing --- but not with that switch name. We already use enable/disable-largefile to control whether 64-bit file access is built at all (this mostly affects pg_dump at the moment). I think the clearest way might be to flip the sense of the variable. I never found "LET_OS_MANAGE_FILESIZE" to be a good name anyway. I'd suggest "USE_SEGMENTED_FILES", which defaults to "on", and you can turn it off via --disable-segmented-files if configure confirms your OS has largefile support (thus you could not specify both this and --disable-largefile).
There is latest version of nonsegment support patch. I changed LET_OS_MANAGE_FILESIZE to USE_SEGMENTED_FILES and I added -disable-segmented-files switch to configure. I kept tuplestore behavior and it still split file in both mode.
I also little bit cleanup some other datatypes (e.g int->mode_t). Autoconf and autoheader must be run after patch application. I tested it with 9GB table and both mode works fine. Please, let me know your comments. Zdenek
