####[ GNU/Linux One Stanza Tip (LOST) ]####################### Sub : Corrupt .tar.gz downloads with Netscape LOST #249 Tarballs downloaded with Netscape at times seem to give error during untarring. Some versions of Netscape (4.7x) do gunzip on the fly, and what is saved is a .tar file (though the name is still retained as .tar.gz). Doing a "file download.tar.gz" can elucidate the problem ... 'tar -xvf' usually works. ####[usmbish (at) users.sourceforge.net]######################
