I just received the recent SAC version to run on my linux box (Fedora 6).
I do have tar -z options, but was not able to install without errors. I
also tried the
gzip -d -c XXX.tgz | tar -xf -
command and also received similar errors before installation
(uncompressing) was complete. The error message is below. If anyone has
had any similar problems installing on this system, I would be grateful
for advice.


Error message:

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--length error

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

After this message, the only directories created are

/sac/bin/sac

    Hi Dayanthie,

    I just (this morning) installed the SAC binary on my Fedora 7 (AMD 64,
    kernel 2.6t.21-1.3228.fc7) box, and it looks to run fine. I did have it
    working on Fedora Core 6 with no problem.

    I did gunzip 070312_sac-linux.tgz, then tar xvf 070312_sac-linux.tar,
    for what it's worth.

    If you like, I can send you the binary I have, in case you got a
    corrupted one.
