Description Tomas Pospisek 2006-02-28 13:22:43 UTC
Version:           1.0-beta4 (using KDE KDE 3.5.1)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

Filelight completely ignores files larger than 2Gb. Please see http://bugs.debian.org/341680
Comment 1 Max Howell 2006-08-15 20:30:49 UTC
I believe this is fixed in SVN. Please test, or test against 1.0. I'll leave open until confirmation, since I can't test it really, it only effects certain linux distro's like debian.

I've tested with 1.0-rc1 from the filelight homepage [1] but files >2GB still can't be seen - see attached filelight screenshot.

Yes sorry I thought I'd included the fix, but it was another bit of similar looking code. Will try to include fix for 1.0, which will prolly mean an rc2 in near future.

SVN commit 575690 by mhowell:

BUG: 122832
Fixed? I hope. Support Debian and it's strange stat semantics.

Comment 6 Max Howell 2006-08-23 00:33:53 UTC
I released RC2, please check http://methylblue.com/filelight for the tarball, if you'd like to test. I'm fairly sure it'll work this time. If not I'll have to try and find a debian install myself or something.
Comment 7 Tomas Pospisek 2006-08-30 00:08:18 UTC
No, the problem is still not fixed in rc2. I still can't see the file.
Comment 8 Tomas Pospisek 2006-08-30 00:12:56 UTC
Please accept my apologies - it *does* work now with large files. I just forgot to "make install" so probably filelight was accessing the old filelight.la or something.
