RE: svn dump and load not preserving all files

UNIX has actual physical limits to file size determined by the number of bytes a 32 bit file pointer can index, about 2.4 GB. for older file systems or runtimes.

Depending on your system, you may or may not have large file support. Try

 man fopen64

if you have an older UNIX.

Cheers,

The original OS was on a Mac, the new OS is some *nix server, probably
Linux. I don't believe either of these have limitations as small as
4GB. Am I wrong?

Thanks,
