Deleting large files
Authored by: 6GTXEK on Oct 19, '07 08:14:09AM

I don't think it's correct to say journaling can't handle deleting large files. I delete much larger files (with less than the file size worth of free space) all the time and certainly don't get kernel panics. There must be another reason you encountered that problem. You've probably already done so, but if not, it would be a good idea to check your filesystem with Disk Utility and/or some third party disk test/repair programs. It could be some damaged structure causing the problem.

Definitely file a bug report with Apple, though! Deleting a file should NOT cause a kernel panic under any circumstances.
