CogSpur on a Mac

Dan Norton

I'm trying to help someone many miles away install CogSpur on a mac. I run Linux as a newb.

On the mac they have run:


$ curl -L -o CogSpur.tgz https://github.com/OpenSmalltalk/opensmalltalk-vm/releases/download/201608171728/cog_macos32x86_squeak.cog.spur_201608171728.tar.gz

But when they try to unzip:

 
$ tar -zxvf CogSpur.tgz

tar: Unrecognized archive format
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

Thanks.
 - Dan

Try using uncompress. 

Uncompress myfile
Tar myfile

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for the prompt reply. Sorry to not respond sooner, but the mac user only just now got back to me for a few minutes. Still no success, but we'll restart from the beginning on another day. We probably need some options because "uncompress CogSpur.tgz" resulted in:

overwrite Cogspur.tgz? y

uncompress: CogSpur.tgz.Z: No such file or directory

We'll try again with something like "uncompress -dkNl CogSpur.tgz" assuming mac options are same as Debian8, followed by "tar CogSpur.tar" (?)

I tried uncompress on Linux and it works as expected - but actually I thought gz extension was gzip, 
So maybe "gunzip  CogSpur.tgz" will work better.

And btw this seems related... 

cheers -ben

The tar command fine here (Mac OS X 10.11.6).

Double-clicking CogSpur.tgz works just as well.

I suspect the download was corrupt. Try deleting it and download again. Maybe use a web browser instead of curl.
