    Default Backtrack 5 r3 vmware archive & 32bit system

    Hello,

    I had quite a surprise opening fine the BT5R3-GNOME-32-VM.zip other a 64bit 12.04 Ubuntu and hitting a wall other my 32bit 12.04 Ubuntu laptop.
    It displays "End of central directory signature not found" with unzip under linux, that it's only a part of a multipart archive other windows vista and 7 32bit, winrar and windows's extractor.
    I checked the archive against it's md5 bca6d3862c661b615a374d7ef61252c5. It was not that.

    More surprising when I came back to my 64bit desktop, loading the BTR3 32bit VM I installed file-roller which manages to see the files inside the zip but cannot unzip it o_O

    Full error message :
    Code:
    Archive:  BT5R3-GNOME-32-VM.zip
      End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
      a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
      latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
      the last disk(s) of this archive.
    note:  BT5R3-GNOME-32-VM.zip may be a plain executable, not an archive
    unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of BT5R3-GNOME-32-VM.zip or
            BT5R3-GNOME-32-VM.zip.zip, and cannot find BT5R3-GNOME-32-VM.zip.ZIP, period.

    ...what? I'm really not sure what you're saying. If the MD5 sum is not the same as what's on the downloads page, then download it again.

    Ok I've been unclear, I thought it could be badly downloaded/transfered but it was not that. I'm not that dummy.
    Try it yourself if you don't believe me, a zip file can work on a system and not another !

    I don't mean to sound harsh, but I'm certainly not about to spend a few hours trying something just to see what you mean. In saying that though, I checked the downloads page on this site, and the VMWare image is a .7z not a .zip... Could that be your problem?

    Good point !
    The direct link sends a .7z file while the torrent gives a zip !
    The files are the same only the extension differs...

    I'm disapointed about File-roller not checking the mime type and surprised a 7z with lzma can be opened as a zip file o_O (under certain conditions)
