Whilst importing a 3Gb Magento database into a development area the MySQL import failed stating:
"The table is full".
A little investigation found that the InnoDB table sizes are defined as 10Mb with a 128Mb limit by default in Gentoo. To rectify this simply modify the:
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend:max:128M
And edit to suite your needs:
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
The data import then should work ok.
