when i try to verify the integrity of KNOPPIX_V6.2.1DVD-2010-01-31-EN.iso with `sha256sum -c` it eventually cancels with "READ ERROR" and "error: ext2fs doesn't support triple indirect blocks"

(10:45:57) phcoder: infinity0: it means that image is bigger then currently supported limit. Please file a bug report

$ du -b img/KNOPPIX_V6.2.1DVD-2010-01-31-EN/
3907502864 img/KNOPPIX_V6.2.1DVD-2010-01-31-EN/

however, booting from the image via loopback works fine (with some manual intervention required to point the knoppix kernel to the rest of the image)
