Also, there are editor/viewers available that only load a small portion of the file and display it, like e.g. (viewer only) - if it's a log file, I assume editing isn't the issue, but rather viewing, so this should suffice ...
Also, "grep"ping certain lines from it (if you know what you are looking for) is also an option ...

why dont you try splitting the large file into smalles ones and open. there are many free tools available to split large text files.
