cifs and 426 Sendfile error: Value too large for defined data type


When I recently upgraded to FC5, everything seemed to work except that I had to switch to using cifs instead of smbfs. Now, I'm having difficulty when trying to download using standard FTP.

My fstab line is as follows:
Code:
//ip.address/share$               /cifs/share                cifs   username="",password="",dir_mode=0777
This seems to work fine.

But I have my FTP jailed down to another directory to restrict further access, so this line is also in my fstab:

Code:
/cifs/share/download          /ftp/download      ext2    rw,bind 0 0
When I download any file that is "large" (more than 50 bytes), I get this error:
Code:
426 Sendfile error: Value too large for defined data type.
Is it becasue I am doing something wrong in my fstab? I tried to mount the cifs share as ext3 and reiserfs with the same results.

Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Thanks!

Did I stump you all?

I've been researching this for 2-3 months now with no luck. In that sense, I wish the kernel supported smbfs again.

hi!
don't know if you guys above still dealing with this problem..for 2 years

just got to that problem and found in the proftpd.conf:
Code:
# Be warned: use of this directive impacts CPU average load!
#
# Uncomment this if you like to see progress and transfer rate with ftpwho
# in downloads. That is not needed for uploads rates.
#UseSendFile                     off
i uncommented the entry and it works fine now.
the warning may be for something else coz i can't see any progress or transfer rate with ftpwho,nor has my average cpu load increased.
