Error while installing package.tar.tar
 
I got this message when try to install any file that has .tar.tar (double .tar) file format :

[root@VAI login manager]# ls
Angel GDM-Blueish.tar GDM-RedHat.tar.tar
bluish-gdm GDM-Cracked-Windows.tar.gz GDM-RV.tar.gz
GDM-Angel.tar GDM-Crystal.tar.gz GDM-Todmorden.tar.gz
[root@VAI login manager]# tar xvf GDM-RedHat.tar.tar
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
[root@VAI login manager]#

How to install the files? I also got a longer message when tring to instal my counter strike game file (cs_15_full.tar.tar) .
Any idea guys?

never heard about tar.tar archives :) first try to rename and then unzip those tar.tar files rename them to tar.gz and try then tar.bz2 or tar.bz ...

To find out what Linux thinks a file is, try this -

file GDM-RedHat.tar.tar

From there you can rename the file to match, and do whatever to unarchive it.
