When is a .tgz file not a .tgz file?
Ok, today is bordering on the absurd. First problem was with the updater in BT3. It seems that when you run it, it says that the GPG keys are invalid. So, I find a fix for that problem on the forums. Download four files and try to install them. Easy? No. That leads to my current problem, I downloaded:
As per the post I opened a shell and typed: installpkg gnupg-1.4.7-i486-1.tgz
bash response is: cannot install gnupg-1.4.7-i486-1.tgz: package does not end in .tgz
Mouse-over and property tab show the download is a gzipped .tgz file. Just to be safe I found the same file on a different site. Same problem. Any ideas what is going on? This is almost silly.....
That installpkg command is when you turn an RPM file into a TGZ file. With those, untar and install them using:
tar xfz gnupg-1.4.7-i486-1.tgz
./configure && make && make install
That should do it.
Do a "file gnupg-1.4.7-i486-1.tgz" and see which result you get.
