vlsf is a plugin for the LUFS package which allows to write large files (4GB and more) on primitive filesystems like FAT32.The workaround is simple: the file is stored in small files (chunks) on the real filesystem using the same method and naming scheme as the split utility.InstallingTo install lvfs, you need the prepatched LUFS package or the original version from the LUFS homepage and the patch (see above).To patch LUFS, docd lufs-0.9.7patch -p0 < ...patchfile./bootstrapThe rest as usual:./configuremake(as root) make installcd kernel/Linuxmake(as root) insmod 2.6/lufs.ko(or the equivalent for 2.4/lufs.o)Limitations:??? chunk files must be named after foo.XY (where XY follows the split(1) scheme)??? chunk size is limited to 2GB??? Link/Symlink operations not possible with virtual files??? no cache update functions - you will see wrong data if you work on directly on underlying filesystem
