"Mercurial reported error number 255: Python(18576) malloc: mmap (size=140732187336704) failed (error code=12) error: can't allocate region *** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug abort: out of memory"
In the log there is a message when I added the large file to the repository before committing it:
"Standard error was: DB_Aux/cross.validation.cat1_new.no_more_patents: up to 9879 MB of RAM may be required to manage this file"
The file in question is large: 3,293,213,537 bytes. Nevertheless, I would expect that this should be possible.
