tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

when I untar doctrine

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 660252 2010-10-16 23:06 Doctrine-1.2.0.tgz


I always get this error messages

root@X100e:/usr/local/lib/Doctrine/stable# tar -xvzf Doctrine-1.2.0.tgz

.

Doctrine-1.2.0/tests/ViewTestCase.php

gzip: stdin: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored
Doctrine-1.2.0/COPYRIGHT
Doctrine-1.2.0/LICENSE
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now


The untar operation works, but I always get this error messages.

Any clues what I do wrong?

Answer

I would try to unzip and untar separately and see what happens:

mv Doctrine-1.2.0.tgz Doctrine-1.2.0.tar.gz
gunzip Doctrine-1.2.0.tar.gz
tar xf Doctrine-1.2.0.tar
