| 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
