problem unzipping a tar.bz2 file tar: Error is not recov
 
i have used the command >tar -xvjpf <file> to uncompress the tar.bz2 file, it was working well and suddenly it stopped saying that it has corrupted files.How should i recover from it.
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

well if tar -jxvf does not uncompress it without error, then maybe its just a corrupted file...go download a different copy from a different site, and see if the same thing happens..

had a similar thing happen today

i unzipped the file with

bunzip2 file.name.tar.bz2

then used the tar command

all sorted
