Having problem with a particular .tar.gz archive. 7zip is able to open the .tar.gz but is unable to open the .tar that it has extracted. Tried with both 7z920-x64 and 7z922-x64, on windows 8. The archive is good as the md5 matched and "tar zxf ubuntu-14.04-beta1-server-cloudimg-amd64.tar.gz" works under linux. Is it a known problem?
7-Zip unfortunately has some issues on Windows with tar files.
Maybe You'd like to check if this thread is related to Your problem:
The trusty-server-cloudimg-amd64.img contained in this tar archive is a sparse file, looks like this isn't supported by 7zip.
Can somebody provide some sparse tar example with the copy of same file in another format (for example, in xz)?
So I can check my code for sparse tar unpacking.
