Hello,

I am trying to download the carrot genome from http://apiaceae.njau.edu.cn/carrotdb/. It is a .tgz file and gives the following error when uncompressed.

[Tia@biopower2 Downloads]$ tar xvf carrot_genome.tgz 

gzip: stdin has more than one entry--rest ignored

tar: Child returned status 2

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

 

Error with gunzip

[Tia@biopower2 Downloads]$ gunzip -c carrot_genome.tgz 

gzip: carrot_genome.tgz has more than one entry--rest ignored

 

Any insights are appreciated!

I downloaded the archive on windows and winRAR seems to think there is a password. I am wondering if this is intentional.

Hello. I renamed the files to .ZIP but as you said, they are password protected and it's intentional as we can infer because of the foot note: "Please send Email to us ( xiongaisheng@njau.edu.cn ) before you deal with these data". I wrote to different CarrotDB emails but they don't give me feedback so, It seems that carrot genome data is not really public. Do you had luck with the password?

Nope, same experience, they never responded. This is really sad.

I tried this myself out of curiosity and I think there are a couple of issues. First, the file seems to have the wrong extension:

$ file carrot_genome.tgz
carrot_genome.tgz: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract

So, maybe it is a zip file instead of gzip. For example,

$ file test.tgz
test.tgz: gzip compressed data, last modified: Mon Dec 29 13:54:29 2014, from Unix

When I tried to unzip it I did not get any errors but I was prompted for a username/password. Sorry, I did not want to register on the site to troubleshoot this issue further but hopefully that helps.

I based myself on this site, everything gives me the same errors.

You want tar zxvf, I'd think?
