Actually, the current 3.9 linux VM in
http://ftp.squeak.org/3.9/unix-linux/ does not handle files > 2GB.
Their stat info (file size, date etc) is not retrieved correctly, and so
they are shown with wrong data in the file list and can't be opened.
I have tried to build a VM which fixes this, but AFAIR the structure of
the linux headers for stat() et al is pretty tricky, and I did not
succeed. Since I could handle the files in question with VisualWorks, I
did not invest much time into the problem, but it should eventually be
So, at least for current linux VMs, 2GB *is* the limit.
