How can I know if I ran out of inodes ? I already tried 128 and 256
inode sizes but the problem occurs in both cases. As I said in my bug
report, I found a patch dated from november 2007 which seems to adress
the problem (see
http://osdir.com/ml/file-systems.ext4/2007-11/msg00200.htm). Off course,
I can't apply it any more now. But it seems this kind of problem still
exists. I have no problem to use ext4 on a 64 bit systems with logical
volumes having approximately the same size.
