Hello, I do not know much about Linux, and I should mention I am not actually running linux but rather Cygwin (linux emulator) on a Windows 2000 comp. I beleive you might be able to help though.
I have downloaded a file, 'beta.tar.tar', when I try to extract it with
tar -xf beta.tar.tar
I get the following error
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to the next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Exit delayed from previous errors
I did manage to tar this file once before and extract it, although I do not recall what option switches I used to do it. I have tried to 'gzip' and then 'gunzip' the file, as I saw that mentioned as a fix to this issue on a forum, but no luck.
Can anyone shed some light on my problem? Thank you.
