I'm booting DSL 2.3 from a USB key ("sda"), with a number of *.dsl, *.tar.gz, and *.uci MyDSL extensions on sda2.
Four of them, TclTutor, coreutils, mc, and vtcl (all *.uci's) give similar error messages when loading:
tar (child): /opt/coreutils/user.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous error
(Substitute, e.g., "TclTutor" for "coreutils" and likewise for the other two; the error message is exactly the same.)
What does the error message mean, and how does one make it go away? Out of the four, the only one that doesn't have files in /opt is vtcl; its directory /opt/vtcl is completely empty.
Other uci's, like opera850 and openoffice-2.0, don't generate the error.
