Error copying large files

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – When I attempt to copy large files (over 4GB) between two external hard drives, the process fails, telling me the file is too large. I've experienced this using cp and rsync, and graphically through thunar. I doubt this is an issue with the filesystems since they're both NTFS, and I can't imagine it'd be an issue with memory since I have 4GB RAM and 6GB swap (surely more than enough for a 5.2GB file?) I'm using 32-bit F16; is this likely to be the source of the problem? If so, I'd guess that installing a PAE kernel would resolve it, but does this pose any risk of causing conflicts with t (HowTos)
