I recently tried to add exopackage support to my project, but I'm getting the following error when trying to add guava as a dependency:

[2015-07-23 16:09:17.413][error][command:1cfc5dc9-b91f-442e-912c-5c137342d6e0][tid:15][com.facebook.buck.event.listener.LoggingBuildListener] DexWithClasses buck-out/gen/lib/guava#dex.dex.jar with cost 4892294 exceeds the max cost 4194304 for a secondary dex file.
BUILD FAILED: Secondary dex exceeds linear alloc limit.

It seems the following diff fixes the error and the application works just fine, but I'm not sure it's the right thing to do to just change the limit.

I believe that older versions of Android have only 4MB, which is the problem (I want to say Gingerbread, although @dreiss would likely know best).

Ah yeah, thanks for clarifying! A little digging shows you were right about Gingerbread, found this article by @dreiss: ;)

Digging a little further, I found the linear_alloc_hard_limit option for the android_binary rule, which actually does just what I need.
