game install problem (xsoldier)


I just downladed xsoldier but i can't figure out what is wrong with the install, as usual ,eheh .
here's what i did so far :

bash-2.05$ cd /usr/src
bash-2.05$ tar zxvf xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
bash-2.05$ unzip xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz
Archive: xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz or
xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz.zip, and cannot find xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz.ZIP, period.

i also tried to gunzip it but it tells me :
bash-2.05$ gunzip xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz
gunzip: xsoldier-0.96.tar.gz: not in gzip format

i tried also to read the readme text but i guess is japanese . any hints ?

it's quite likely i think that, assuming you dl'ed it a few times to ensure it was a valid file, it's not actually a tar.gz file, but a plain tar with the wrong name.... some coders are lazy! try tar again but drop the z. also run "file" on it to see it that can tell you what it is.

I think the archive is incomplete.

I have the same problem when downloading tar files, the download is aborted for some reason and I'm not aware of this fact.

I don't have problems to untar the file but there are missing files.

i guess most of the times the problem is not at where we think :

check this out :
-----------------------------------------------------
インストール

必要なら Imakefile を書*換えてから

% xmkmf -a
% make install
-----------------------------------------------------
on the instructions (japanese readme) there are some lines you can see like those above , what they really mean is what you can read ( almost )

xmkmf -a
make install

so i did and it worked good . BTW didn't know i could get packages from debian site eheh ,i mean it never occured me , they look pretty safe (no cookies)
