Re: Don't like "setup" for ocassional updates

I thought is was that straight forward. Consider the .bz2 file under bzip2:
I did a "bunzip2 -d file..." and ended up with a file "bunzip2.exe" which is corrupt. Can't do
tar -t file...
without getting the corrupt file error. Maybe I just got a corrupt file but I thought I would check things out before continuing to really mess things up.

How can I re-get that one file without setup messing up my current system?

bzip2-1.0.3-2.tar.bz2? Just use 'setup' in download only mode. Or 'wget'. Or 'curl'. Or...
