It seems that you have used some sort of backup tool to save one or more backups to /dev/st0 before creating an st0 device node. Since you are root, you're allowed to create normal files under /dev. Just delete this huge st0 file and create a real device node for it: # cd /dev # sh MAKEDEV st0 then rerun your backup thingie to save the data to a real tape and not a file on disk. > As far as CPAN is concerned, should I delete the files or create a symlink > like you, to another partition with more space? I don't use CPAN, but I'd probably move /root/.cpan someplace else and symlink to it, just in case useful data is still in there.
