I should think that something is wrong with qnxpatchE.tar. It should be
qnxpatchE.tar.F. I suggest you to contact local sales or QSS.
Check it by:
pax -v < qnxpatchE.tar
If it’s a valid archive the pax listing should finish gracefully.
If it barfs with some kind of an error, it’s probibly not a good archive.
Two more thoughts. If the archive IS valid, just refreeze it and use
/etc/install script. I.E.
This should create a qnxpatchE.tar.F.
If pax claims that this isn’t a valid tar archive, maybe it’s just the
name that is screwed up. Try:
melt < qnxpatchE.tar | pax -v
This assumes that the ‘.F’ is simply missing. If this is the case,
just rename it. I.E.
mv qnxpatchE.taf qnxpatchE.tar.F
and then /etc/install it.
HOWEVER any results that are less then what is expected (meaning
that there already isn’t a valid qnxpatchE.tar.F archive) may be a sign
that something is suspect.
