Hello List,

i have a 32bit Linux box with a 3Ware Raidcontroller and 4x 1TB disks. After installing Debian Etch i had to find out that i am running into some limits.

Is there a way to use a Partition >2GB with 32Linux/LVM?

You mean 2TiB? Partitions greater than 2GiB (but less than 2TiB) should "just work".

If that's the case, you need to use a real partition table as the traditional MSDOS partitioning scheme is limited to 2TiB partitions or devices (it can't address disk locations beyond this point).

The GPT partition format is widely used on ia64 and does not have this limitation. It's supported by parted and most distribution installers (even for non-Itanium systems).

Bryn.
