    Tar file error

    sputhuff Lurker

       

      wget http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmserver/VMware-server-2.0.0-110949.i386.tar.gz

       

       

      md5summ'd it and it matched the given md5; When i go to untar it i receive an error:

       

       

      tar xzf ~/VMware-server-2.0.0-110949.i386.tar.gz

      tar: vmware-server-distrib/lib/isoimages/solaris.iso: Wrote only 6144 of 10240 bytes

      tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

       

       

      thought it could have been a bad DL so i downloaded another time and received the same error.

       

       

      anyone having the same problem with the currently hosted tar?

          Just grabbed this package via wget (already had x64 version installed and working) and it extracts just fine. If you gunzip and tar separately, does it still error in the tar?

           

           

          Presumably you have checked that you haven't got disk problems/errors?
