I often download tarballs with wget from sourceforge.net.
The downloaded files then are named, e.g
When I try to
tar xzf SQliteManager-1.2.4.tar.gz\?r\=http\:%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fsqlitemanager%2Ffiles%2F\&ts\=1305711521\&use_mirror\=switch
I receive the following error message:
tar (child): Cannot connect to SQliteManager-1.2.4.tar.gz?r=http: resolve failed gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file tar: Child returned status 128 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
After renaming the file to
foo.tar.gz the extraction works perfect.
Is there a way, that i am not forced to rename each time the target file before extracting?
