the filename CPAN-1.9304/t/CPAN/authors/id/A/AN/ANDK/cpantestdummies/CPAN-Test-Dummy-Perl5-Ma ke-Features-1.04.tar.gz is long enough that gnu tar is creating a "././@LongLink" fake file to contain the name, and solaris tar then goes "no, don't know what that is", extracts it as a plain file and then exits with status 1, thus causing the cpan process I'm trying to install it from to fail. Since the file is 103 chars, changing it from .tar.gz to .tgz should make gnu tar Not Do That according to kane. Gimme a shout if you want me to verify a fixed tarball before you ship it. -- Matt S Trout Need help with your Catalyst or DBIx::Class project? Technical DirectorShadowcat Systems Ltd.
