I am working with omnetpp and I want to run it in a Debian system (in my university) but when I type
tar xvfz omnetpp-4.2.2-src.tgz
I keep getting this error:
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
When I do the same on my computer (ubuntu 12.04) there's absolutely no problem at all. I can't install new packages on the Debian system as I don't have root access.
Is there any possible solution for me here? Maybe a stand-alone program that might do the job? Thanks!
P.s. USB drives are not an option as they're not allowd access
