Tar error: implausibly old time stamp
I'm trying to extract some sourcecode and keep getting this error with tar -xjvf ./filename.tar.bz
Any ideas how to fix or is it safe to ignore ? - I can't tell if everything extracted ok (>4GB code)
implausibly old time stamp 1970-01-01 01:00:00

I think, IIRC, that the extraction will have failed (the way to test is tar it back up again and use md5sum on both files). Sounds like the archive is corrupt.

Thanks. I'll download it again and re-try.
not this time. it's a beta of thinstation2.3 - 700MB download, but extract is huge.

Maybe Doc Brown went back to 1970 in his flying DeLorean and coughed up your tarball on... something. Wait a minute, did they even have tarballs back then? Ah this could be catastrophic... don't extract it, you may implode the universe!
