Probably the files got mangled during download. Did you use Netscape to get them? I've heard (but can't confirm) that Netscape and some other browsers automatically expand HQX files when downloading (which would not be helpful on a non-Mac system). I'd expect the file to be renamed when that happens, but I'm not sure. What does the "file" command say about those files? BTW, I just grabbed that same file using Konqueror, and here's what I got: rassilon@panopticon stuffit $ file aladdin_exp55.hqx aladdin_exp55.hqx: BinHex binary text, version 4.0 rassilon@panopticon stuffit $ hformat /dev/fd0 Volume name is "Untitled" Volume was created on Sat May 24 13:08:32 2003 Volume was last modified on Sat May 24 13:08:32 2003 Volume has 1448960 bytes free rassilon@panopticon stuffit $ hcopy -b aladdin_exp55.hqx Untitled: rassilon@panopticon stuffit $ You could try using Konqueror, or dillo (tiny browser), lynx... or even wget http://www.aladdinsys.com/downloads/files/aladdin_exp55.hqx ;) -- // Carl Hudkins :: ICQ 5723399 :: PGP 50238D9E // // "Romulan spies, Romulan spies / Without honor in the Klingons' eyes // Wanna destroy the Enterprise / Romulan spies" // (To the tune of "Particle Man", by They Might Be Giants) -- gentoo-ppc-user@g.o mailing list
