How long have you left it? I seem to recall thinking it got stuck
too, but I was using a rather old and slow processor. It did
eventually finish, despite giving the impression of doing nothing for
I had the same problem. Doing a tar jtvf on the bzip2ed tar file
revealed that the download had an integrity problem:
-rw-r--r-- root/root 18948 1997-12-26 17:00:00
bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.
Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)
It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.
You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.
-rw-r--r-- root/root 18386 1995-10-18 18:00:00
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
While the installation seems to be hang, it's actually working. A peek
into the directory indicates that the file being installed is growing
