directory checksum error

I have a tar file with naed ass bcs.tar.gz downlaoded to my work station and It contains all the .c files and .o which i needed. when i am trying to unzip this one i am facing directory checksum error.

What does it mean.How to resolve this.

I tried with tar -xf and tar -tvf commands.but not worked.

shell : /sbin/sh

It's a tar.gz, not a .tar. You need to either use a version of tar that accepts the -z flag or use gunzip on it before untarring.

you can use

gzip -d bcs.tar.gz
u will get the tar file(bcs.tar) and after that use the command

tar -xvf bcs.tar
