please check on which machine it has been tared and then on which machine you are trying to untar.
use isainfo -v command on Solaris and isoinfo -version for Linux
to check machine details.
for me it looks like you have created the tar-ball on 64 bit Spark machine and then trying to untar on a 32 bit GNU machine, if true then it is expected.
Solution: No proper solution
Workaround: if its as I said, then try to tar the file forcing machine to perform this task for 32 bit, since Solaris Sparc machine are capable of running 64/32 bit applications. and then try if the same tared file can be untared on GNU Linux.
