Is it possible and  what plugins  do I need to use


RPM up to 4.4.x is limited to 2GB package content size. From 4.6 on
the package content is uses 64bit ints (8 Exibytes) but the files are
limited to 4GB each due to cpio restrictions.

How about the number of files in a rpm?

The practical limit is somewhere in tens of thousands of files per package, depending on path lengths, number of different directories involved and such. The limitation comes from the header total and individual tag data sizes being artificially capped to 32MB and 16MB respecively.
