Software Downloads Frequently Asked Questions


I can't download files when using Microsoft Internet Explorer.

If you are downloading a large file:

Internet Explorer downloads files first to a directory called "Temporary Internet Files", then copies it to the location you specified. Make sure that the drive that contains your "Temporary Internet Files" directory has enough space to hold the file. If there is not enough space, the file may not download completely.

To find the current location of this directory, select "Internet Options" from the Tools menu, then click on the "General" tab. Click on "Settings..." in the section for temporary files.

I can't untar the .tgz or .tar.gz file, it seems to be corrupted.

Releases for UNIX platforms are typically compressed using GNU tar. To decompress you need the GNU tar utility. If you do not have the GNU tar utility, see the next FAQ.

When running GNU tar, use the full path name for GNU tar as all UNIX implementations have their own tar utility. Remember to use the -xzf option to recreate the original directory structures.

EXAMPLE: /<path_name>/tar -xzf <filename>

You can also try using a ZIP compression utility such as WinZip to decompress .tgz or .tar.gz files.

If you still encounter problems, please contact your nearest Sybase Support Center.
