I have recently been trying to install the latest SLS release from
tsx-11, and am having some problems with the a2 disk. Namely, the installation
procedure complains that the bin4, dosemu and image packages are not in gzip
format, and fails to install them. I did set binary mode when downloading, and
I do have all the files for that disk, and it's not a media problem as I have
tried different floppies. The packages _are_ in gzip format because I have
successfully un-gzipped them on the Sparcs at college. So what am I doing
wrong? I presume the files on tsx-11 are not corrupted since nobody else
has mentioned this.
I have been reading comp.os.linux for the last few days but nobody
seems to have mentioned this, apologies if it has been raised before, but I
have been having my finals over the preceding fortnight, and it is likely that
any relevant articles have expired :-)
