http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello Everyone, I'm trying to extract a tar file that was made on a redhat linux and then transferred trough FTP to the AIX 5.2 server. Everytime i extract the TAR file it stops with an error on the exact same line: Quote: ... x munin-1.4.3/master/DejaVuSansMono.ttf, 320812 bytes, 627 media blocks. tar: 0511-169 A directory checksum error on media; 1 not equal to 6443. I get the file trough FTP in bainary mode. First time i just did the ftp transfer again, because i though it got corrupt. But i tried several times and always the exact same error when extracting with tar -xvf filename.tar I then tried recreating the tar on the redhat box using different tar format. I tried them all: ustar, posix, v7, oldgnu. I then transferred them all, and every time exactly the same error as above. I'm really lost as why this is, and how to fix this ? (HowTos)
