kde apps getting truncated files from cifs mount


Hello All,

Trying to edit text files located on a samba server using a cifs mount : kate, kwrite and internal conqueror viewer get only the first 256k (262144) bytes of a ~ 400k file.

No problem with another file ~850k.

No problem with another file ~300k.

No problem with other editors (libre office, vi).

No problem when kde apps use "smb://xxxxx" to access the file.

Any idea ?

TIA

Is that file a constant one or kate randomly truncates txt files?

I made several copies of the same file, so the file was constant regarding its content. But I can't no longer experiment.

The problem disappeared after a lot of edit/save cycles made on another workstation running an older version of KDE.

So we'll never know what happened. Maybe content related ?

Thank you anyway for your reply.
