Question: I cannot decompress my LONE-TAR download.
Keywords: download, decompress, extract
Operating Systems: ALL

Causes

1. 	If you are using the Chrome browser, our downloads automatically get decompressed on the fly, but still show the .gz extension.

 

Solutions

1. 	LONE-TAR & AIR-BAG (combo) Downloads:

	Instead of first running # gzip -d <filename.sh>.gz 
	
	Just run # sh <filename.sh>.gz

2.	AIR-BAG (stand-a-lone) Downloads:

	Instead of running # tar xvfzP <filename.tar>.gz 

	Just run # tar xvfP <filename.tar>.gz
