Unable to untar src files

Postby bsimzer » Wed Nov 16, 2005 1:13 pm

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

Do you have an incomplete or corrupt download?
The md5sum is:
MD5 (zcs-3.0.0_M2_740-src.tgz) = 859dc366a9da563c92586e268576c624

I think that was what the problem was. This has been resolved (ie: this thread can be closed).
Thanks for the help
Cheers,
B.
