    Default Unable to untar src files

    Hi,

    I have downloaded the src (and the binary) for zimbra. I am trying the following command to unzip/untar:

    tar -xvzf ./zcs-3.0.0_M2_740-src.tgz

    and it yeilds the following error:

    tar: Skipping to next header
    tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers

    gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

    I then download the latest and greatest gnu tar, configure, make, make install, then:

    ../tar/tar-1.13/src/tar -xvzf ./zcs-3.0.0_M2_740-src.tgz

    and it yeilds the following error:

    gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
    ../tar/tar-1.13/src/tar: Child returned status 1
    ../tar/tar-1.13/src/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

    I am running Red Hat 9. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Default incomplete download

    Do you have an incomplete or corrupt download?

    The md5sum is:

    MD5 (zcs-3.0.0_M2_740-src.tgz) = 859dc366a9da563c92586e268576c624

    Default

    I think that was what the problem was. This has been resolved (ie: this thread can be closed).

    Thanks for the help

    Cheers,

    B.
