Ticket #101 (reopened defect)
setup.exe doesn't understand .bz2 archives created by 7zip (and gnuwin32?)
|Reported by:||maphew||Owned by:||osgeo4w-dev@…|
"[earlier this year] I reported that setup.exe cannot unpack the tar.bz2 created by 7zip. Today I can extend that lack of success to also include gnuwin32's bzip2. Surprisingly I'm pretty sure cygwin's own bzip2 also doesn't work though I didn't test this last on completely because I was tired of up/dnloading the same file over and over again. When I diff'd gnuwin32 and cygwin's output, the files were exactly the same.
In the end I worked around the problem by uploading the non-working package to upload.osgeo.org, opening a remote shell on same, and unpacking & repacking using the tar & bzip2 on that machine.
I found one other report of problems with 7zip and cygwin setup, but no illumination: http://www.nabble.com/Problem-making-a-package-td18701549.html"
