I am writing some code that needs to write files that are larger than
2 GB. My file system on my disk is EXT2, so I know it supports larger
files than that, however when I hit a 2 GB file size, I get errors
trying to write a file.
I have tried including the flag O_LARGEFILE, however that is not
defined for a 32-bit system. I checked the system limits with ulimit
-a and it says I have an unlimited file size (in blocks). I believe
the limit is also inherent in older versions of GLibc, but I am
Any ideas? What flag in the kernel am I missing? Or is it something
in how my drive if formatted? Any kind of help would be appreciated.
