When I run:
tar -zxvf <file>
from a dialup connection, I get the following error about 40% of the time:
gunzip: stdout: broken pipe
tar: child returned exit status 1
The rest of the time it works just fine. The archive that I'm un-tarring
is ok. And I have never been able to reproduce the problem when I'm logged
in on a VC.
My system is Slackware 3.1, mostly "out of the box" (I haven't even
recompiled the kernel yet). Kernel version 2.0.27. The VC's are using
agetty; the dialup line is running uugetty. I'm not running X or anything
Any brave souls care to venture an idea? I'd be very thankful.
