Am trying to install Eclipse IDE in UNIX.
I have first extracted .gz file eclipse-jee-ganymede-SR2-linux-gtk.tar.gz using

gzip -d eclipse-jee-ganymede-SR2-linux-gtk.tar

Am getting this error when i tried to extract the .tar file using command

tar -xf eclipse-jee-ganymede-SR2-linux-gtk.tar


And the directory checksum error at last.
Whats going wrong here?

I think you could get errors like this if you were using an ancient "tar" implementation that makes some assumptions about path lengths and such. What sort of UNIX system is this -- maybe a crufty old HP/UX system?

In any case, the fix would be to obtain a copy of GNU "tar", install it, and use that instead.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
