I have been looking on various search engines for several hours now and I can't find any useful info on how I can enable large file support (files > 2GB) on debian woody.
Can anyone assist? The situation is that I am trying to unzip a very large .gz file and it is choking after the unzipped file gets to be greater than 2147483647 bytes.
Some of the information I have found indicates that it is supported in the woody distribution but may be an off-by-default option in the install. I can't even find any info about how to check and see if it has been enabled in my current kernel... what would be the best way to do this?
And even if I am able to enable it, what about support for large files in other apps? (specifically gunzip)
Any assistance appreciated. Thanks.
