Is your daemon writing to a log file (in, say, /var/log)? If that's the case, you might want to look at logrotate.

Uh, yeah.

You're getting an error that tells you that you have a file that's too big; find it, either delete it or empty it with
Code:
cat > file
^D
If you don't know how to find large files, here's a way to do that:
Code:
su -
<root password>
find / -size +1G -exec ls -l {} \;
That will find files greater than 1 G in size; if you don't find any that way, change 1G to 500M.
