That's a large file alright. :) To access files bigger than 2GB on a linux
system, you need:
- kernel 2.4.0test7 or newer
- glibc2.2 or newer (2.1.3 works also but has a few problems)
To access these files with ecasound, you need ecasound 2.1dev5 or newer (I
recommend using the CVS-version as dev5 and dev6 have had quite a few
bugs), and you need to compile it with "./configure --with-largefile".
For general info about Linux large-file support,
http://www.suse.de/~aj/linux_lfs.html is an excellent resource.

ReiserFS 3.6 has a max filesize limit of 1073741824 GB bytes (2^60 bytes),
so that shouldn't be a problem. ;) The current 2.4 kernels limit filesizes
