Subject: Warnings while extracting DOUGM/hyperic-sigar-1.6.3-src.tar.gz
When using the current CPAN.pm shell for installing the CPAN module DOUGM/hyperic-sigar-1.6.3-src.tar.gz I get the following warnings: CPAN: Archive::Tar loaded ok (v1.52) Invalid header block at offset unknown at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CPAN/Tarzip.pm line 320 Invalid header block at offset unknown at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CPAN/Tarzip.pm line 320 Invalid header block at offset unknown at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CPAN/Tarzip.pm line 320 Invalid header block at offset unknown at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CPAN/Tarzip.pm line 320 Invalid header block at offset unknown at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CPAN/Tarzip.pm line 320 The remaining extraction process looks fine (but I did not really checked the extracted content). This happened on a Linux (perl 5.8.8) and on a FreeBSD (perl 5.8.9 or 5.8.8) system. There were no warnings when using the OS' tar/gzip. Regards, Slaven
