Value too large for defined data type?
I tarred up my /home directory in preparation for burning it for safe
keeping. When tar was done running it exited then reported that the file
I just made was literally too big to do anything with. rm, mv, cp, nothing
will affect it. Here is what I see:
rm: cannot remove `/tmp/save.tar': Value too large for defined data type
I was storing the save.tar in /tmp. I'm running stable version with kernel
2.4.0. I have tried as root also to remove this file. How can I get rid
of this bugger?
