Subject: problem with observation 0723450101
Full_Name: Marek Wezgowiec
Submission from: (NULL) (193.147.152.102)


Dear Helpdesk,

when downloading ODF data from the XSA, occasionally I get an error of a faulty
tar file, trying to unpack it. Downloading again usually solves the problem.
Nevertheless, for the observation 0723450101 I constantly get this error, trying
to download for months now.

markmet@laptop:~/xray/misc/part4$ tar xvf 0723450101.tar
2502_0723450101_SCX00000ATS.FIT
2502_0723450101_SCX00000TCS.FIT
2502_0723450101_SCX00000RAS.ASC
2502_0723450101_SCX00000ROS.ASC
2502_0723450101_SCX00000SUM.ASC
MANIFEST.562349
2502_0723450101.TAR
tar: A lone zero block at 1300980

I would appreciate if you could look into this problem.

With best regards from Krakow,
Marek Wezgowiec

Dear Marek,

 that is very strange because I can download and untar without problems. Is
there perhaps a problem with disk space on your computer?

Perhaps you can check the file sizes which should be:

   0723450101.tar.gz   164086771 (164 MB)
   0723450101.tar      666101760 (666 MB)
   2502_0723450101.TAR 639284736 (639MB)
If the ones you have are smaller than this, then you may have a problem with
disk space. The command
  df
gives you information about the various partitions which also gives you the
percentage of Use, 100% meaning the partition is full.

Best regards,
Jan-Uwe

Hi Jan-Uwe,

no, the disk space is not a problem. Especially, that as I mentioned, I 
tried to get this data for months now... But I will try now to get the 
data again and let you know the file sizes.

Cheers,
Marek

Hi again,

so the problem is still there, even though I get the same sizes as you do:

0723450101.tar.gz	164086771
0723450101.tar		666101760

when I unpack 0723450101.tar using

tar xvf 0723450101.tar I get again

2502_0723450101_SCX00000ATS.FIT
2502_0723450101_SCX00000TCS.FIT
2502_0723450101_SCX00000RAS.ASC
2502_0723450101_SCX00000ROS.ASC
2502_0723450101_SCX00000SUM.ASC
MANIFEST.562349
2502_0723450101.TAR
tar: A lone zero block at 1300980

Nevertheless, I get the same size of 2502_0723450101.TAR as you 
do (639284736) and can unpack the files.

Should I then consider the above error not important and use the files 
with confidence?

Marek

Hi Marek,

 does the same happen if you don't unzip the file and instead do
   tar xzvf 0723450101.tar.gz
?

To find out whether the file is corrupt, run gzip -t <file.tar.gz>; this
command
will check the file for errors, and if any are found they should appear in the
terminal. This should tell you whether the file is corrupt.

If the file is sound and the error reoccurs, it means it is probably the known
issue with tar that occurs when a file does not have a pair of zero blocks at
the end of it, as GNU tar expects. The solution to this is to add the -i option
to ignore the zero blocks. So use tar ixzvf <file.tar.gz>

The issue is documented in detail under:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21270445

 Best wishes,
Jan-Uwe

Hi,

apparently, the problem relates only to a pair of zero blocks you 
mentioned. using the -i option makes everything go smooth.

Thanks for your help and for the explanations!
Cheers,
Marek
