I am trying to extract files from a 'tar'ed, compressed, file that I
ftp'd from a remote site. I am using the command
cat <filename>.Z | tar -xvf -
and I get an error that says:
tar: Directory checksum error, 0 not equal to <large number>
The machine is an IBM RS/6000. I don't suspect there is anything wrong with
the .Z file itself. Either I am not using tar correctly, or I should be
doing something to the file before I use tar on it.
Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
