Big file support under linux 2.4.4
Message ID:

I have two debian boxes, both run the same libc and gcc, only difference is
one is linux 2.2.17 and one is 2.4.4.

On the linux 2.4.4 I have a big file laying around.

Under both 5.6.1 and 5.7.2 make test fails because a file called t/big is
created, (created by ext/Fcntl/syslfs.t).

When I try to delete it, mv it, or do anythign with it I get.
Value too large for defined data type.

So, first, any tips how the heck get rid of this file :), two, what could be
broken with regard to big file support under linux 2.4.4 but not 2.2.17?
