Thread: Frustration with bz2 extension
05-03-2005, 12:51 AM #1Audible RuckusGuestFrustration with bz2 extension
Argh. I downloaded openoffice from 3 different mirrors. They're all compressed in a bz2 format. So I download Stuffit. I double click on the file, it says the archive is corrupt. I drag it to the Stuffit expander icon, it says it's corrupt. I download a second openoffice from a diff mirror. Same thing. I look up another app, OpenUp. Now both OpenUp and Stuffit claim to be able to open bz2 files. Is this some kind of inside joke? OpenUp came across the same corruption. Is there another app that can open up bz2? By the way I'm using os 10.2.8. Is it possible that the geniuses over at OpenOffice loaded up corrupt files onto their website? I don't think so. Or are the brain surgeons writing OpenUp and Stuffit inept? Maybe. Has anyone come across this problem? HHHHHHEEEELLLLLPPPP!!!

You could try NeoOffice/J the version of Open Office that doesn't need X11.
I've been using it for ages, it acts more like normal Mac software.

K, I did what you said using that Linux command. However when i ran it, it said something like no file or directory named nrst0 exists in /dev. Anybody know what nrst0 is?
