Description mkatshym 1999-06-07 21:16:47 EDT
For smoe reason when using gzip seperatley (and with tar
-zxvf, etc.) gzip will report a crc corruption error.  This
occurs on everything from linux kernel sources, to just
programs people have tarred and gzipped up.  I have checked
each gzipped file on a SunOS machine with gzip version
1.2.4 (same as on RH6.0) and they have worked perfectly.  On
some gzipped files, gunzip works just fine, it seems
random.  Have already checked that the files were downloaded
in binary format.

Just for your info, example files which it fails on include
linux-2.2.9.tar.gz from ftp.us.kernel.org, it does not fail however on
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-08 04:55:59 EDT
I downloaded linux-2.2.9.tar.gz from ftp.us.kernel.org and ran
"zcat linux-2.2.9.tar.gz > /dev/null" on both i386 and sparc64
architectures successfuilly. Perhaps you have some other problem
(possibly hardware on bleeding edge kernel) ... ?
