Subject2.4.11.p4 and dd
dd does not work anymore.

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=1024k

stops with "File size limit exceeded"

Using kernel 2.4.3 the same command works fine.

2.4.3 uses a large amount of buffer, 2.4.11p4 only chache.
2.4.3 doesn't swap, 2.4.11p4 eats up 1 GB RAM and 100 MB swap.

Best regards
