It was probably built using GNU tat, so you'll have to use GNU tar
(/usr/sfw/bin/gtar on Solaris 10) to extract it.

Thank you very much for your help, solaris tar directory checksum error. But my qemu-system-sparc is running
solaris26 and so I have the following 'tar' :
/usr/bin/tar
/usr/sbin/tar
/etc/default/tar
/etc/tar
Can you please let me know what can I do this case?

If I extract it on solaris10 or linux, then how can I get it through
lynx (as it contains many folders inside)? I checked and it just opens
the filesrather than downloading them.

You do like to go for the pain eh? (using a 13 year old OS on an emulator).

As they mentioned, the archive was probably created solaris tar directory checksum error GNU tar,
which is slightly incompatible with the standards.

You probably want to add packages from sunfreeware.com that match the
OS you are trying to run up. They have a GNU tar 1.2.3 package for
Solaris SPARC 2.6 in pkg format there. They have instructions up there
on how to use such a thing.

It would probably be easier to run the OS on real hardware if you
really wanted to mess around with it, QEMU is certainly not the
easiest thing to deal with.

GNU tat is a lovely typo ;-)

If you extract it using gtar on Solaris 10, and then create a new
tarfile using /usr/bin/tar instead, *that* tarfile should extract OK on
Solaris 2.6.

Thank you very much for your help. I got the point. I need to
uncompress it on my solaris8 machine and then compress it again using /
usr/bin/tar to be usable on my solaris26 qemu virtual machine. For
installing this applicationI need to expand my / root /c0t0d0s0
partition size. Can you please help me how to accomplish this?

I think the first thing you need to do is to learn something about Solaris!

You can use format to adjust your partition sizes. Doing so will make
some, or all of your existing files unreadable!!!!! Make a backup first!

I recommend a minimum of 4GB for / plus /usr, and another 4GB for swap.
You can make those partitions larger if you need to but I would not make
them smaller.

Just noticed something we've all overlooked until now.

This is a compressed file (the 'gz' gives it away)!

Uncompress it with gunzip, and you _may_ find a tar file that will happily
extract on Solaris 2.6 (gag!).

Ditto - Solaris "tar" doesn't support the "z" option for gzip.
