All programs zip with no errors. On reading; root# bzip2 -t zippedfile.bz2 bzip2: 3s1.com-smartstage_ftp-full-20070502-0125AM.1b.tar.bz2: data integrity (CRC) error in data You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover data from undamaged sections of corrupted files. - gzip also sites a "crc" error - can't remember rzip's error, (it does output an error.) - uncompress goes without echoing error but tar expanded is not able to be untarred. > Are the output zip files reasonable in size? The zipped file size seems reasonable in each case. > Are the expanded files reasonable in size? expanding will not complete, except uncompress, which expands the file to the original size, plus 6 bites, then the tar file expanded is unreadable. If so where does the mismatch > start? on expanding, it seems the error happens near or at the end of the expanding process before halting and exiting with error, that is if I attempt to read the file with "tar -tzf filename.tgz" in gzip's case or "tar -tyf filename.bz2 in bzip2's case. > > Is the problem always in the same place for the same input file? Pretty much, but I can't say if it is exactly the same in each case. I am going to attempt swapping memory and see if the error continues. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
