Bug Description

I'm building a Ubuntu DVD derivate based on Ubuntu Hardy, filesystem.squashfs is about 2GB, but when mksquashfs do 73% (1,5 Gb aprox) mksquashfs stop working.

(no errors, simply don't continue, strace -p $MKSQUA_PID show poll call stopped)

Installing squashfs-tools from Debian unstable seems to resolve problem and I can build squashfs compressed images.

Current squashfs-tools version: 1:3.3-1ubuntu2

Changed in squashfs:
status: Unknown → Fix Released
