I am attempting to remaster VL6.0 Standard for a small charity I volunteer with. I have done this with VL5.9 but using the tar.bz2 files, not .tlz files.
I am using the versions of tar and lzma in VL6.0 (tar is v1.22, lzma is v4.32.0beta3).
I am attempting to pack vlconfig.tlz using this command:
tar cfa /home/media/veclinux/vlconfig.tlz .
It works to a point. I have now tried it twice - the first time I get a file 248MB large, the second time 438MB large - same command, no error messages. When the installer attempts to unpack veclinux.tlz it does so for a while then crashes with the error "....cannot extract veclinux.tlz. There is a problem with the file or your partition is full". My partition is not full.
Also, when I use "mc" to attempt to unpack the .tlz it falls over with a "lzma: Decoder Error".
I suspect either a tar or lzma bug due to differences in packing sizes for two runs with no errors and then the unpacking error.
Has anyone noticed similar or does anyone have any suggestions (other than trying up to date versions of tar and lzma?).
