I checked both directories you suggested above, and it is not located in
either one. I do not know whether this relevant, but you know how the
download window, once it has finished downloading your file, it says
DONE. And it has two further options there on the download screen: OPEN,
and REMOVE. When I click on OPEN, a message comes up which says,
"bolnagri-in.tgz does not exist. It may have been renamed, moved,
deleted, or since it was downloaded."
Now, there is one other thing I want to mention here. I did try to
download this bolnagri-in file several days ago from another page on the
website, and the folder did get downloaded into my Swarup directory.
Before trying to download it again tonite, I deleted that copy. But
then, when I found that the new one did not seem to be coming into my
swarup directory, I undeleted the bolnagari folder which I had sent to
the trash earlier. That folder does not seem to have any .tgz file in
it. But it does have a read-me file with instructions for installing,
which are the same as what is on the website. I tried giving the untar
command line again-- and when that did not work, I tried the second and
third steps in the install process to see if they would work. Nothing
seems to have worked, but I am pasting the output from terminal below so
you can see it. My main suspicion right now, is that the bolnagri-in
download on the website may perhaps be defective. Maybe it does not have
the tarball bolnagri-in.tgz in it. Because even when I downloaded the
bolnagri-in application a few days ago from a different page on the
website as I mentioned, that folder still does not appear to have the
tarball bolnagri-in.tgz file in it. Please see the terminal output
I can delete that bolnagri-in folder again if you think that is the best
approach, and try to download it afresh. But I will need to do something
different this time--otherwise the same set of error-messages is bound
Looking forward to to your thoughts,
