Hard Time Installing Packages That Don't Already Come in *.tgz Format
Hello. I am using the ZipSlack distribution in Slackware 9.1, which enables me to dual-boot between Windows and Linux on one DOS partition. I downloaded the file utempter-0.5.2-i486-2.tgz.gz using Windows and placed it into a Windows folder, made a ZIP file and copied it to my Linux folder (I did that because whenever I download a file directly into my Linux folder that has multiple periods, whenever Linux boots up, it garbles up the filename; besides, I can't download it through Linux [stupid Winmodems, don't get me started...]), but when I booted into Linux, unzipped the file and gunzipped the file to make it into a *.tgz file, whenever I run pkgtool or installpkg in order to install the package, it returns a message saying that "the package is corrupt." I notice that I don't get this problem whenever I download a file that already comes in *.tgz format (even if it was in the *.zip format before it was extracted). What do I need to do differently so that way the file can work? Thank you.
