tripwire error: Value too large for defined..

    I am running tripwire in Integrity Checking Mode. When the check is complete, I receive the following error:

      Section: Unix File System

    1.   File system error.
         Filename: /var/ldap/cachemgr.log
         Value too large for defined data type

    I checked the size of the above file and it is over 2 gig:

    $ du -sk /var/ldap/cachemgr.log    
    2098192 /var/ldap/cachemgr.log

    I have looked through the documentation and haven't found a solution. 

    I am running tripwire on Solaris 10 x86.

    the compiler I used was gcc  3.4.3.

    Any ideas what I need to do to fix this?

    any help would be appreciated.

    thanks and regards,

      I believe this might be a problem with Solaris itself. I have been using tripwire mostly on Linux systems and it works fine with larger files.
