Unable to extract Julia on WSL2

Latest Julia. I am unable to extract the archive on WSL. Has anyone seen this?

That kind of looks like your gzip binary may be messed up. Can you compress and decompress stuff with it?

Good point, it does seem that the gzip is seriously bad. :roll_eyes:

The fix is

echo -en '\x10' | sudo dd of=/usr/bin/gzip count=1 bs=1 conv=notrunc seek=$((0x189)) 

What Linux is this?
On my WSL2 Debian I can’t reproduce.

How did you arrive at this fix? Is this patching a specific byte of the binary?

Well, that is extremely obscure. Glad you were able to sort it out.

Thanks for the issue link, good to know.
