are unopenable. Every one, including the beta
versions. Have I made one
of those embarrassing newby errors? Konqi Filemgr says :
"The file does not exist" even tho it lists it.
Is there a location for a transcode I can open and compile?
The tarball has been created by a pre POSIX version of tar. POSIX tar files
have a standardized header with the string 'ustar' at position 258, which
makes it easy to identify them. Pre-POSIX tar files need additional logic to
identify the file which seems to be lacking from whatever KDE component that
handles/determines file types.
You can try yourself:
gunzip -c transcode-0.6.14.tar.gz|file -
/dev/stdin: tar archive
tar -xzf transcode-0.6.14.tar.gz
tar -cf - transcode-0.6.14| file -
/dev/stdin: POSIX tar archive
