Hi,

I have a tar file, when I try list its contents, I get following error. How to fix it?

tar tvf GM.tar
-rw------- user/gp    689 2004-03-25 16:43:34 CHR101/chrom101.map
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

try using cpio:
cpio -tvd -H tar < your-tar-file
