If you are getting checksum errors then it looks like you have a corrupt file. Try downloading it again.

cheers!

katana, you have a letter missing in your tar command. It should read:tar zxvf majordomo-1.94.5.tar.gz . Note I added a ' z '. The ' z ' tells tar to gunzip the file. ' x ' is for extract the files. ' v ' is for verbose. That means it prints out a lot of messages. ' f ' is to indicate that it should use the name following as the file to operate on.

Aha - Linuxcool - very good point!

However, the tar that comes with solaris doesn't support the z operator so you'll need to use
Code:
gzip -dc myfile.tar.gz | tar xvf -
to extract it instead.

HTH
