Well,

I installed Darwin 8.0.1 without any problems.
I have everything to try it out:

application.tar mactel.tar, etc.zip, application.tar


But there´s something wrong with tar.
Well I want to untar everything. So first Darwin 8.0.1to8.1.0 patch

tar xpvfz Darwinpatch

First it unpacks some files but then errors occure:

tar: Skipping on next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors



Well, I thought the download was faulty, downloaded it, but again these messages.
The problem is that I can unpack the package within windows with no problems at all. So I unpacked it within windows, made a zip out of it and wanted to unzip it within darwin.
A zip error accoured saying that the zip file wan not properly packed.

Well, I have never had problems with tar.gz
Are there any problems with Darwin and tar, zip, ... ?
Has anyone the same problems ?
Btw, is it possible to unrar RAR files within Darwin ?

With
cpio -ivd -H tar -H Darwin.tar
I untared the Darwin8.0.1to8.1.0 files with some errors. I now ran ./script.
Let´s see if it works...
