bzip2: i got twice data intergrity error


I had 2 tar files, which contained a bzip file each. I did for both:
tar -xvf filenameX (this one caused no problems)
bzip2 -d File_Containedin_FIlenameX



Code:
pyros:/var/ftp2/sarge# bzip2 -dv sarge.img.bz2
  sarge.img.bz2:
bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.
        Input file = sarge.img.bz2, output file = sarge.img

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

bzip2: Deleting output file sarge.img, if it exists.
"-ttv" option and bzip2recover fixed nothing.

I suspect this 2 incidents are not a concidence. What's the problem?

The person who created the tar-file put a corrupted
bz2 file inside it?

I transfered to a Fedora Core 4 PC (from my Sarge server) and used file-roller; it worked... Whats's the difference?

Well, can you still bunzip2 it on the sarge box? No idea
who or what file-roller is or what it does, and not sure what
you mean when you say "it worked".



Cheers,
Tink
