Re: [vox-tech] File write limit?



Fair enough Mike. :-) Here is my full df (I hope you don't mind the -h
option):

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5             1.9G   89M  1.7G   5% /
none                  266M     0  266M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda8              23G   12G   10G  53% /home
/dev/hda1             157M   18M  138M  12% /mnt/windows
/dev/hda9             2.4G   34M  2.2G   2% /tmp
/dev/hda7              24G  2.2G   20G  10% /usr
/dev/hda10            2.4G  150M  2.1G   7% /var

I always download in the /home partition. Currently I have symlink from
/archive to /home/archive, and I am trying to download the 8.2 Mandrake
ISOs to /archive/Linux/ISO, which is in the home partition.

Here is the directory listing after the download aborts:

-rw-r--r--    1 doug     users         98M Mar 17 12:20
Mandrake82-cd1-inst.i586.iso

Here is the cut-and-paste of my NCFTP session:
Anonymous user logged in
Logged in to mirrors.secsup.org.
Current remote directory is /pub/linux/mandrake/Mandrake/iso.
ncftp .../mandrake/Mandrake/iso > ! pwd

The local file "Mandrake82-cd1-inst.i586.iso" already exists.
        Local:     102400000 bytes, dated Sun Mar 12:20:05 PST 2002.
        Remote:    681836544 bytes, dated Sun Mar 12:20:05 PST 2002.

        [O]verwrite?  [R]esume?  [A]ppend to?  [S]kip?  [N]ew Name?
        [O!]verwrite all?  [R!]esume all?  [S!]kip all?  [C]ancel  > r

        NOTE: If you want NcFTP to guess automatically, "set auto-resume
yes"

Mandrake82-cd1-inst.i586.iso:   File size limit exceeded
[doug@solo ISO]$

I get this same error each time I try to download an ISO file (whether I
resume or start fresh). It gets to 98MB and stops. I tried to ncftpbatch
these files, and I wound up with a directory full of 98MB iso files. :)

Do you need any more information? Do you have any ideas?

Thanks a bunch Mike!
