Okay, this is pretty srupid. I received a tar file from a client.
When I try to extract it I get the following error message:
"This does not look like a tar archive"
I'm using tar -xf oldfile.tar.gz, in RedHat 7.
What makes this more exciting is that someone also downloaded a copy and
they had no trouble extracting the file. I suspect that this is
something simple (and obvious) but not to me.
Thanks in advance,
