I'm using IBM's compiled version of RPM 22.214.171.124 on AIX 7 and am attempting to
package a ~30GB set of files (uncompressed).
When rpmbuild gets to the "Processing files:" stage it craps out with the following
type of message:
Processing files: foo-1.0-1.ppc
warning: Recognition of file "/foo/bar/libfile.so" failed: mode 100755 cannot
allocate zu bytes (Invalid argument)
Smaller packages can be built just fine. I've doubled the ulimit on files open,
memory, etc. but it fails on the same file on a rebuild.
