I am running tar extract on a Sun Sparc 5 with Solaris 2.5.1 configured,
64 meg ram, and 192 meg swap space. I always hit a tar extract error on big
tar files like the gcc.tar. tar will crash with output:
HELP- extract write error.
I suspect it is running out of swap space, but is there any other reasons,
and what is the solution?
Thanks for any help.
