Question tgz file doesn't end in .tgz?


using slack 9.1, i downloaded Eterm from linuxpackages in the .tgz file, and when i use the "installpkg" to install it, it says "error, <packagename> does not end in .tgz" but, from what i can tell, it does! the package is Eterm-0.9.2burn-i686-1.tgz, so, what am i doing wrong?

Hi, you can get a package containing Eterm and dependencies from Eterm.org.
The download link is Eterm for Slackware.
Just extract it and run the installation script. Works well for me.
