Subject Re: Ant binary build file may be corrupted.
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2001 19:50:03 GMT
I had the same problem also on sun....
but the same .gz file unzips  and untars fine on linux :

    tar -zxvf  jakarta-ant-1.3-bin.tar.gz

can't do that on our sun box.  I'm thinking that gunzip is doing something
funky to the tar file.
what I did was to go ahead and gunzip and untar and then explicitly extract
the missing files from the archive...(i believe it is the lib dir that
doesn't untar successfully)

ant seems to work fine after that.

hope this helps,
