And i find the instruction in the untar successful section:doc/topicA.html,
 
Installing on UNIX or Linux systemsSave the archive file in a directory on your computer. Enter the following command from a shell prompt to uncompress the file:
 
tar xvjf Base-IDS-Developer-Edition-v1.1.x.tar.bz2but when i rename it to bz2 format,and decompress it,prompt me this file was not compressd with bzip2# bzip2 -dv Base-IDS-Developer-Edition-v1.2.0.tar.bz2 Base-IDS-Developer-Edition-v1.2.0.tar.bz2: not a bzip2 file.

Same for me the archive seems uncomplete :

 
Tested 3 downloads and testing the tar still shows corrupted archive.

Hi hatrick, rougail,

 
Sorry you had trouble with the tar file. From your printout it looks like there are 3 problems with:1. The unexpected end of file2. Outdated documentation referring to the 1.1 bzip version3. File ownership.
 
I have not been able to get much done about this over Thanksgiving, but please can you try one of the following workarounds:1. Download the .exe file, and rename it to .rar. Then use a Linux unrar utility to extract it.2. Download the self-extracting .exe file to a Windows machine and uncompress it.
 
I'll post an update to the blog ASAP.
 
Thanks for pointing out the problems.Guy

Hi,GuyThanks for your kindly reply.Following your instruction,I redirect to the download link again,and find that there is no .exe file for download.Only one choice is:

 
IDS Developer Edition virtual appliance demo
 
IDS 11.5 Developer Edition SLES 10 SP2 virtual appliance demoBase-IDS-Developer-Edition-v1.2.0.tar (1.96GB)

Thanks Hatrick.

 
It looks like there was a communication problem about which file to upload. I was told today that a new file is being uploaded, but it doesn't look like it is there yet. If you see a .tar file, it is the wrong file, it should be a .exe or a .tgz file.
 
I will add a blog post about this tomorrow, by which time I hope the problem will be resolved.
 
Guy

The problem has now been fixed, and the virtual appliance updated. I added a blog post for it here: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/blogs/page/gbowerman?entry=ids_virtual_appliance_upgrade

 
Thanks a lot for your patience and help with this.Guy
