BitTorrent available Zip Corrupted

A very good BitTorrent FAQ can be found here:
BTFAQ

If you have a Proxy or a firewall especially the Windows XP one and are having trouble, then please read the instructions here: http://btfaq.com/serve/cache/24.html. Other useful links can be found on the tracker.

If you've already got the file, want to help share it and have BitTorrent installed, open the file above and point to the zip file and you will become a seeder.

Please try and keep your windows open as long as possible although it is not mandatory.

I downloaded it by using just the nightly, same date. But the zip occurs to be bad. I couldn't extract it.

Well you don't HAVE to, but it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense. :D

Yea, the 2003-09-15-08-trunk directory isn't a directory, it's a file...

It appears to be the Linux version, zipped. If you download the file, add .zip to the end, then unzip it you get the Linux nightly. Lucky for them, I guess... :)

Ah this is good info. Now we know why this happens there must be a bug in the linux build process where it does not create the directory to move the file to and then does not specify the full path for the destination so it does either a:

cp filename directory

- or -

mv filename directory

This works fine if the directory exists but screws up if it does not.

If it did a

cp filename /directory/filename

- or -

mv filename/directory/filename

Then the problem would never occur.

It should just do a mkdir first though to make sure the directory exists.
