RE: CVS - Terminated with signal 25

We're talking about two different things.  Ulimit is showing you user limits
that are imposed by the shell; the "unlimited" means that no ulimit is in
effect, it does not (in the case of file size) mean that your filesystem
hosting the CVS repository has support for large files (those greater than 2
Gigabytes in size).  How to check, or configure your filesystem for large
file support is operating system dependent and a bit off-topic for this

If you can run something like systrace or truss against the cvs binary and
then cause it to terminate with signal 25 (not sure what that is on your
system, check /usr/include/sys/signal.h) I think you'll see that it
originates from a filesystem call.

I'm fairly certain, though not positive, that CVS includes support for large
files.  Could one of the maintainers, or someone with a repository that has
large files in it please confirm this?
