Subject Re: v2.1 Mac OS X installation DOES work

I think this should be in the docs somewhere:

The answer to this problem is to unpack the archive with 'gnutar'  
instead of 'tar'. Using Mac OS X's default tar (which is BSD tar I  
presume) produces a corrupted filename somehwere, causing the whole  
process to fall over. Using gnutar makes everything go smooooth.

Perhaps this is common knowledge amongst people here, but I (and I  
suspect most other Mac OS X users) never heard of this fenomenon.  
Luckily gnutar is also installed on Mac OS X.

I found my answer here: 

So long,
