| Nope.  First, the limit is at file-level, not database-level (mind
| you, a problem with the filesystem, not Linux per se).  You can have
| tons and tons of files, but noone of those can be over 2GB.

FileStorage type database was implicit, as we're discussing ZODB,
and that's one file per database.

| Secondly, this is only true for the ext2 (and «lesser» filesystems).
| ReiserFS does not have this limitation and I've heard that is supposed
| to be shipped «batteries included» come 2.4.1.

Sorry?  Didn't I say kernel version 2.4.0 or greater?  The 2GB problem
(in ext2) is fixed there you know.

..and a side note for ReiserFS, I've had it mess up a filesystem
completely, so much for 1 second recovery after a crash.  ;-)

BTW, there is a list called [EMAIL PROTECTED], for ZODB specific
