I am experiencing a problem with tar. Let me explain to
you what I am trying to do:
I would like to archive a directory with some subdirectories
and then move the archived file via ftp to another host
and then unarchive it there. But when I attempt to untar
the archive I get a message: "A directory checksum error..."
If I ls the current directory where I attempt to untar the
archive I see that most of the files are missing.
I tar the files on Sun workstation that runs
SunOS 4.1.3 as follows:
I untar the archive on RS/6000 that runsQuote:>tar cvf file.tar .
AIX OS as follows:
Can anyone please point to me what the problem is.Quote:>tar xvf file.tar .
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
