Installing Swaret


I am having trouble installing swaret. First it downloads as a .tgz.tar file, and when I rename it to .tgz and run installpkg swaret*.tgz I receive the following error message:

Code:
Cannot install swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz: package is corrupt (failed 'gzip -l swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz')
Does anyone know how I can install swaret. Thanks.

EDIT: editted for formatting.

uh, you can't just re-name a tgz.tar file and expect it to work!

read the man pages about gunzip or bunzip
