Thanks for the help, tar xvf src.txz tar: This does not look like a tar archive tar: Skipping to next header tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers tar: Read 4896 bytes from src.txz tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors [lyang0@ala-lpggp2 lyang0]$ tar xvf src.txz tar: This does not look like a tar archive tar: Skipping to next header tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers tar: Read 4896 bytes from src.txz tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors > # cd cusr/src/ontrib/netcat/ > # ls > FREEBSD-Xlist FREEBSD-vendor atomicio.h netcat.c > FREEBSD-upgrade atomicio.c nc.1 socks.c > # > <your build command(s) here> > Suppose gcc -o netcat netcat.c atomicio.c socks.c should work Lei > You can check the FTP server for other versions of the OS > (e. g. different branch and architecture, starting at > ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/, then selecting > architecture and finally the OS version).
