I attempted to install Gentoo Prefix on windows vista but it fails to install every time unless I force it to use gpx-sua6.1.tar.gz. I tried to manually decompress gpx-sua6.0.tar.gz and I receive an 'unexpected end of file' from tar while decompressing files in /var.
The MD5 of my ISO matches the digests from distfiles:
$ md5 gpx-universal-20110831.iso
MD5 (gpx-universal-20110831.iso) = 0e00f14cfe1a855a598ceae82d189883
$ md5 /dev/fs/E/Data/Snapshot/gpx-sua6.0.tar.gz
MD5 (/dev/fs/E/Data/Snapshot/gpx-sua6.0.tar.gz) = 81b883a103083112fcccd96ec916f577
I have been running on the gpx-sua6.1.tar.gz (which I believe is for Interix on windows 7?) but I am getting several strange compilation errors in various packages and I cannot rule out that they aren't related to the fact that I'm using the wrong snapshot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download http://distfiles.gentoo.org/experimental/prefix/x86-interix/20110902/gpx-universal-20110831.iso
2. Mount it and run tar ztvf on Data/Snapshot/gpx-sua6.0.tar.gz
3. Observe tar failure
Installation succeeds :D
this is work for mduft.
We have migrated away from x86-Interix (somewhat useful up to Windows Server 2008) towards x64-Cygwin (working on Windows Server 2008 and newer).
