Downloaded latest tar ball from PyPI "askbot-0.7.23.tar.gz". Checksum looks correct.

md5sum askbot-0.7.23.tar.gz 1e1e248545c17680dd692b9d9c544ea0 askbot-0.7.23.tar.gz

However, "tar xvfz askbot-0.7.23.tar.gz" terminated prematurely with:

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors <<<<<<

Any suggestions?

Ended up unzipping it using winzip on my Windows XP desktop, and then transferred the directory to my Rhel 5 64bit server.

There must be some issues in your RHEL box with tar.

Hi @openbob I tried the same way as you and it works I have tar (GNU tar) 1.25.

Can you try with other uncompression software? or is this on a server?

Does it works to untar a different archive?

Hope this helps you.
