Package: kdevelop
Version: 2.1.2 (using KDE 3.0.2 )
Severity: normal
Installed from:    Mandrake Linux Cooker i586 - Cooker
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2 (Mandrake Linux 9.0 3.2-0.2mdk)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.4.18-21mdk
OS/Compiler notes: 

When i create a new C++ console project in KDevelop 2.1.2, the project wizard cannot extract the admin.tar.gz file.  (It receives the message 'gunzip: admin.tar.gz: not in gzip format')  Upon further investigation, i found that admin.tar.gz is actually a bzip2 file, so i had to manually extract it with bunzip2 admin.tar.gz.

here's the output of gunzip -V
gunzip 1.2.4 (18 Aug 93)
Compilation options:

my bunzip2 version is Version 1.0.2, 30-Dec-2001.
