I have a Linux fileserver for my company of ~60 people. I have about
40 gig of data uncompressed. I back up to tape, but I'd also like to
be able to tar it (with compression, like tar -cvzf), or zip it, or
something. Unfortunately all methods die at the 2 gig limit mark. I
assume this is a limitation of the compression program rather than the
ext2 filesystem isn't it?
I read about somebody compiling gzip to support larger files, but don't
have a clue where to start. Can anybody help me create compressed
files greater than 2 gig?
