error trying to execute ./conky.SlackBuild script

I am trying to install conky from I have downloaded all the files and tarballs as per the instructions on Nonetheless, I receive error when trying to execute the .SlackBuild script (as root).

bash-4.2# LUA=yes ./conky.SlackBuild
bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file.
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I receive same error if I try without the LUA=yes. just ./conky.SlackBuild

I have tried to download the tarball again with same result.

Any ideas how to proceed?

Try re-downloading the source tarball (which is the only tar bzipped file that I can see on the list of things).

It's possible the download was corrupted or something.
