Hi folks!

When I try to emerge any package that ends with tar.xz I got the error:

xz: /path/to/file: Compressed data is corrupt
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Anyone knows how to fix this?
I am using gcc-4.6.3 and glic-2.15-r3.


Thanks!

wagnersouza,

Welcome to gentoo :D

Strange error. The only thing I can think of is to check if app-arch/xz-utils is installed.

Code:
gentoo-gateway distfiles # whereis xz
xz: /usr/bin/xz /usr/share/man/man1/xz.1.bz2

If it is, try reinstalling.

if you unmerge zlib your portage will be completely broke and you wont be able to merge ANYTHING.... he's got zip problems so im saying his zlib is possibly broken also. mines using a minizip useflag for something or other, he should probably also remerge tar...

Go and get a clue before you post again, other people have already reported you for posting uninformed and quite frankly dangerous misinformation in multiple threads already.

Neither zlib nor zip have anything to do with XZ files.

/usr/bin/xz, provided by app-arch/xz-utils, is probably relevant.

Right, and I had similar issue with freshly installed system, I had to build binpkg of app-arch/xz-utils on another host to overcome this. I still don't know what caused this, I was installing a new box while using stable stage3 and same time switching over to ~arch. Once everything was ~arch xz-utils built and ran fine.

Files with .tar.xz suffix are XZ-compressed tarballs, and the command for dealing with them is "tar". "emerge" is for installing Gentoo packages, and it does not deal with .tar.xz files.

While the wording in the original post is a bit sloppy the output clearly shows that it's not emerge complainging about a .tar.xz file, but xz throwing up on a given archive.

The problem was with the cflag : -floop-strip-mine.

Not only xz will broke, but unzip, tar, gzip too.

Thanks for your help!
