It sounds more like your download program blew up the tarball. If you type "file <filename>" unix can tell you what kind of file it thinks it is. It should say something like "gzip compressed data" with maybe more info after that depending on which version of the "file" command your system has.

<DIV>I have downloaded gnupg-1.2.2.tar.gz from your site. I use the HowTo document as my reference and in doing this procedure. However, when I did:</DIV>
<DIV># tar xvzf gnu-1.2.2.tar.gz</DIV>
<DIV>I got an Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers and invalid compressed data--crc error as well as invalid compressed data--length error which eventually exited from the process.</DIV>
<DIV>Does this mean that the tar that I have downloaded is corrupted or is there something that I should have done before issuing the tar command? Or should I just download the gnupg-1.2.2-1mdk91.i586.rpm instead and run the rpm command?</DIV>
<DIV>I use RH 9 with minimum installation. Hope to hear from anyone soon. Thanks in advance.</DIV>
