Problem installing Twolame from the Slack Builds


I know I need to get more knowledge on creating slack build files. But I did try to modify the current files but I cannot get them working it gives this error:

Code:
bash-4.2# ./twolame.SlackBuild
tar: /tmp/tmp/: Cannot read: Is a directory
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
you can fine the files here:

Thanks

It would help if we knew what modifications you attempted.

I gave it a look at this again and I notice that "pwd" will not deal with a black space in the name file.

I had by mistake a black space before the name in the folder and it gives this error. Remove the black space and remove all the modification and it works as it should. Leaving it here is case someone have the same problem.
