#4740 closed defect (fixed)

Large file support

Reported by: wjp Owned by: sev-
Priority: low Component: Port: Linux
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Imperia on IRC today reported that scummvm on 32 bit Linux failed to start a game located on a CIFS mount. After some debugging we traced this down to the lack of large file support in scummvm, which causes stat() calls to fail in some cases. (Hypothesis: the stat::st_ino field could be too small without large file support enabled.)

We should probably enable large file support by default on 32 bit systems to fix this. I believe the command 'getconf LFS_CFLAGS' gets the required flags on Linux. I don't know about other platforms, nor if it would be worth it and necessary to add support there.
