having some trouble with bzip2 ...


Decompressing is incredibly slow compared to other compression formats and consistently results in errors and partially extracted archives (using file roller in x windows). tar -xj and variants will not work from the shell prompt. Any advice?

well, it must've been the archive file itself, because it's working now with a different archive. Nevermind.
