Problem with file-deletion



Hi,

I have a problem with the deletion of a file on a 7.2 machine (IBM, SMP)
The file sits on a raid5 disk with an ext3 filesystem.

[somesystem someuser]# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.9-34custom (root somesystem) (gcc version 2.96 20000731
(Red Hat Linux 7.2 2.96-108.7.2)) #1 SMP Mon Sep 2 11:37:22 CEST 2002

[someuser somesystem]# ls -il
total 1073747024
  32477 -rw-rw-r--    1 test   test   644212388 Aug 30 23:40 test.log

[someuser somesystem]# file test.log
test.log: can't stat `test.log' (Value too large for defined data type).

When I do a rm -f test.log, the system crashes; messages fly over the
console, but no output on a ssh session.

I do need the diskspace occupied by this file - anyon a clue how to
continue/proceed ?

Many thanks

regards
