Description Tom Dickson 2004-03-24 08:44:41 UTC
I have a server exporting a 160 GB harddrive as an NFS mount.

If I mount that share (linux:/opt/server) on either the liveCD or my Gentoo box (both with a 2.6.x kernel), I get the following output from "df -h":

livecd root # df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
tmpfs                  93M  2.3M   90M   3% /
tmpfs                  93M  2.3M   90M   3% /
/newroot/dev/cdroms/cdrom0
                       79M   79M     0 100% /mnt/cdrom
/dev/hda1             7.9G  3.0G  5.0G  37% /mnt/gentoo
df: `/mnt/linux': Value too large for defined data type

If I mount it on one of the older RedHat systems, it works correctly. The problem seems to be somewhere around 128GB. Am I missing something like --large-file-support when compiling df?


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using a Gentoo system (either liveCD or installed)
2. Mount an NFS share that is more than 128 GB.
3. df -h returns the error above.

Note that the "-h" is not necessary to produce the error.

Actual Results:  
As above.

Expected Results:  
It should have produced the size correctly.

Note that this may have been fixed in some recent code, as it doesn't happen on
my work machine anymore, but still happens on my home machine?

What package provides df? fileutils or coreutils?

coreutils provides df, please try updating to the latest stable and see if that resolves this
Comment 2 Tom Dickson 2004-10-07 20:26:31 UTC
Fixed with system with current updates. Thanks!
