Hello,

Not sure if this is relevant, but it might be. Seems as though there's a kernel bug preventing creation of some large filesystems - See:

http://www.geocrawler.com/lists/3/Linux/35/0/7497786/

Also, in the event you can't get though, there's a patch at:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/kernels/v2.4/2.4.18pre2aa1/00_blkdev-ulimit-1

HTH,

-Walt

I get the following error when trying to create the filesystem:

adam@braindb:~$ sudo mkfs.xfs -f /dev/sda9
mkfs.xfs: warning - cannot set blocksize on block device /dev/sda9: Invalid

The same thing happens if I try ext2:

adam@braindb:~$ uname -a

Anyone know what is going on here?
