kdenetwork-3.1.tar.bz2 - directory checksum error

Hi Chris,
   I guess the bug still exists in Solaris tar, but now its pretty random.
Even though it worked for the other packages, it refused to work for this
one. I had to use a linux machine to untar it (as I didn't want to install 2
versions of tar on Solaris) and it worked fine.

Thanks for your help

That's weird. I take it your not using "md5sum" or a similar program to get
checksum? If there's a md5sum program for Solaris, can you run it on the 
kdenetwork file and compare it to the md5 checksum listed on this page:


You should be able to work out whether it's being downloaded correctly at
