Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

Does anyone else have problem extracting the .tar.gz file?

I got:

$ tar -xvzf textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz 
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Xarchiver (a Linux archiver) couldn’t open it either.

Mmmm, now I tried again, this time decompressing the .gz first (gzip -d textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz) and then extracting the .tar (tar -xvf textpattern-4.5.7.tar) and this time it worked. Likely an issue on my side.

What’s the md5 of your file, Julián? Mine here is 04fcfd6d5699537bf72aac48cc1139eb. I used tar -xvzf textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz without any problems.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

gaekwad, to check the md5sum, I’ve had to download it again, because after decompressing it, I ended up only with the .tar file.
This is weird: the md5sum is fd174b6ebf8672771a2b6bdaf448d7d8, but this time I was able to tar -xvzf it flawlessly.
Not sure what is going on, as we are getting different md5sum for the file, but both of us were able to untar it… mmmmmm.

I tried again from a command line:

$ curl -O http://textpattern.com/file_download/98/textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz;md5 ./textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz
  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
100  540k    0  540k    0     0   537k      0 --:--:--  0:00:01 --:--:--  538k
MD5 (./textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz) = fd174b6ebf8672771a2b6bdaf448d7d8

So that does match this time. That is weird.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

The file size & md5 changes depending on the user agent (browser):

$ ls -al *textpattern*.gz
-rw-r-----@ 1 pete  admin  554343 23 Sep 14:08 chrome-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 pete  admin  553961 23 Sep 14:07 curl-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--@ 1 pete  admin  553961 23 Sep 14:08 firefox-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--@ 1 pete  admin  554344 23 Sep 14:07 safari-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz

I’m guessing this is due to some metadata of sorts. The zip file is not affected:

$ ls -al *textpattern*.zip
-rw-r-----@ 1 pete  admin  618715 23 Sep 14:13 chrome-textpattern-4.5.7.zip
-rw-r--r--  1 pete  admin  618715 23 Sep 14:13 curl-textpattern-4.5.7.zip
-rw-r--r--@ 1 pete  admin  618715 23 Sep 14:13 firefox-textpattern-4.5.7.zip
-rw-r--r--@ 1 pete  admin  618715 23 Sep 14:14 safari-textpattern-4.5.7.zip

Huh.

Edit: …and here are my md5 details for completeness:

$ md5 *textpattern*
MD5 (chrome-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz) = 04fcfd6d5699537bf72aac48cc1139eb
MD5 (chrome-textpattern-4.5.7.zip) = 0df97c9901436559e9b9e0a8b232ab72
MD5 (curl-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz) = fd174b6ebf8672771a2b6bdaf448d7d8
MD5 (curl-textpattern-4.5.7.zip) = 0df97c9901436559e9b9e0a8b232ab72
MD5 (firefox-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz) = fd174b6ebf8672771a2b6bdaf448d7d8
MD5 (firefox-textpattern-4.5.7.zip) = 0df97c9901436559e9b9e0a8b232ab72
MD5 (safari-textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz) = 6a44702e2980ce04765ecf3a975f6271
MD5 (safari-textpattern-4.5.7.zip) = 0df97c9901436559e9b9e0a8b232ab72

What the…

Confirmed, of sorts. If I download the .tar.gz in Chrome and Firefox on Windows, when I browse the archive with 7-Zip I get this structure in Chrome’s download (541kb):

textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz
---> textpattern-4.5.7.tar
------> textpattern-4.5.7
---------> textpattern-4.5.7
------------> files
------------> images
------------> ...

Yet under Firefox (540kb):

textpattern-4.5.7.tar.gz
---> textpattern-4.5.7.tar
------> textpattern-4.5.7
---------> files
---------> images
---------> ...

In other words, the Chrome download has an extra ‘phantom’ folder inside it for reasons I cannot explain. Baffling.
