    Subjectmke2fs (and mkreiserfs) core dumps

    I've got an interesting situation here where mke2fs and mkreiserfs core dump
    with the message: File size limit exceeded (core dumped)

    I recently upgraded the storage device in this machine from a single IDE
    disk to a mirrored RAID running off a 3ware controller.

    The disk was living off the primary controller as hda, I have since moved it
    to hdc and the cdrom to hda.

    The kernel is 2.4.18-rc4 + Trond's NFS_ALL patch.

    Some info:

    # fdisk -l /dev/hdc

    Disk /dev/hdc: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 4982 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

    From dmesg:

    Anyone have any ideas? Could it be a bios setting?
