Re: Proper way to create a .gz file for an extension package?
Are you running on a Mac? If so, you can't use the standard tar command. Instead you need to use
gnutar --format gnu ...
to create the package.gz. The tar command that comes with Fink cooperates nicely with the Updater, so if you have Fink installed just make sure that /sw/bin is near the front of your PATH.
