Corrupted Download on Linux
I have created an app and zipped it (gzip) as Heatsinks.tar.gz 877kB
It is uploaded to the server and is 877kB there.
When I download the file from the server using Linux the file ends up on my desktop as 530kB and does not extract.
I have tried using two different machines, one running Fedora5 with Firefox the other Suse 9.1 with Konqueror.
If I download the file onto a Windows box with IE the file is 877kB and when transfered to any Linux machine and extracted, the app runs.
Any assistance/help appreciated.
is it on an HTTP (web) server or an FTP server.
Downloads from FTP servers are some times corrupted
because of ascii conversion. The client in ascii mode
attempts to convert the carriage return/line feeds
according to whether it is DOS or UNIX.
