    jboss 3.0/Tomcat binary release and AIX 4.3.3 tar

    Jonathan Ruttenberg Newbie

      I have tried to extract the files from
      jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3.tar, using the 'tar'
      provided with AIX 4.3.3. I get an error like
      x jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3/bin/shutdown.sh, 1800 bytes, 4 media blocks.
      x jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3/tar: 0511-169 A directory checksum error on media; 804395936 not equal to 36021.
      bin/jboss_init_redhat.sh, 2417 bytes, 5 media blocks.

      After extracting a few more files,, tar ends like this:
      x ././@LongLink, 123 bytes, 1 media blocks.
      x jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3/catalina/webapps/tomcat-docs/catalina/docs/api/org/apache/catalina/valves

      This is the first "LongLink" in the tar file.

      This version of 'tar' successfully extracts files
      from 'tomcat' archives which use the LongLink extension.
      It may be significant that the 'tomcat' archive
      has LongLink entries with 644 permissions, whereas
      the jboss archive has LongLink entries with all bits

      Note: the 'tar' command is run as a non-root user.

      Any solutions for this problem would be appreciated.
