Description Georges Rosset 2005-01-13 08:16:47 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
tar files (rhn-packages.tar) downloaded from the RedHat network often 
has one corrupted file inside. For exemple, there is no way to 
download the file glibc-2.3.2-95.30.i686 in the tar format. It will 
be always corrupted:

[root@wcct updates]# tar -xvf rhn-packages.tar 
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

However this file will download correctly alone as an rpm file.

Best regards

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. choose download packages
3. un-tar the rhn-packages.tar

Actual Results:  File can be un-tared

Additional info:

Very annoying and time consuming.

I am having the same problem.  Another thing to note is that FireFox reports
that the tarfile download is only 1 KB.  

Note: our site has the RHN Proxy.
