Hello!

I downloaded Shank 2 from the Humble Bundle 7 page, and I must be crazy or something, but I can't find an actual executable for Shank 2 in my .tar.gz download. There's just library files and resources. How do I run it?

Thank you, Nanthiel

Hey Nanthiel!

I have the same problem here!

i've extracted the program in a terminal and show me this:
________________________________________________

Shank 2/data/movies/05_int_000.ogv
Shank 2/data/movies/07_end_pos_000.ogv
Shank 2/data/movies/01_ult_001.ogv
Shank 2/data/movies/01_int_003.ogv
Shank 2/data/movies/08_ult_001.ogv
Shank 2/data/movies/02_end_000.ogv

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: Final-de-arquivo inesperado no arquivo-tar -------> tar: unexpected eof in archive
tar: Final-de-arquivo inesperado no arquivo-tar -------> tar: unexpected eof in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
_______________________________________________

The hash of md5sum seems perfect:

pedrohenrique@PH-Desktop:~/Downloads/Humble Bundle 7$ md5sum shank2-linux-b8.tar.gz && cat shank2md5
36ac38385df6fc2743b9e94266ac7e35 shank2-linux-b8.tar.gz
36ac38385df6fc2743b9e94266ac7e35

I dont know what i have to do

PS: sorry my poor english.

I have exactly the same problem. It seems like the archive is corrupted. It is not a download issue, the file as present on the servers is corrupted so it doesn't matter how many times you check it or download it or with which application.

As with the previous persons, I have correct md5sums but the file is still corrupted and can't be extracted. I found no way to recover or repair the archive so please fix this as Soon as possible because we payed to play this game.

Thanks.

For the original poster: Can you please change the title of this into something like "Can't extract archive Shank 2 for Linux" so that more people can easier identify it? I think there will be a lot of comments here Soon... I hope a fix will also come Soon. I actually bought the Indie Bundle for this game only.

By the way, did you get the file from torrents or direct download? I've downloaded the torrent, trying the direct download now...

Confirmed on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS 64bit.

Neither the direct download nor the bittorrent one can be extracted. The md5sum for both downloads of shank2-linux-b8.tar.gz is "36ac38385df6fc2743b9e94266ac7e35":

 > md5sum shank2-linux-b8.tar.gz 
36ac38385df6fc2743b9e94266ac7e35  shank2-linux-b8.tar.gz

Console output of tar:

 > tar -xzf shank2-linux-b8.tar.gz 

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I had no problems unpacking the archive. But seems it's a more common issue than the missing file. I don't know why I didn't get an error. Will update the title.

@Nanthiel - You have the same problem as we do. Some GUI archiving tool may suppress the error, or just show something neutral message. I was also able to extract a lot of file, but at some point it just can't find / extract the rest of the files. This is when the error appears in the console and this is why you had no executable.

I used 'tar -xf $fname' in the shell. :) But I tried it again now and I do get the same error that was mentioned. I must have been so eager to play the game before that I simply ignored output. :D

Hey all,

We're currently working with the Humble Bundle team to try to address this situation.

We're planning to make an updated Linux package available later this morning which should solve the problem.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.

Afternoon all, there is an updated version of Shank 2 Linux available now which should hopefully extract and function correctly.

Thanks so much for your patience!

Still getting the same extract error after downloading again. Below is the error:


gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Thank you, this works great.

For all! I got the archive in the torrent. To start a game, do the following steps. Open your console in the current folder archive game and type:

gunzip shank2-Linux-b10.tar.gz
Konsole freezes for a few minutes. Decompression in the process. Аfter

tar xvf shank2-Linux-b10.tar
This will create a folder named Shank 2. Go to the / bin and run shank2-bin. Enjoy.

PS. I forgot to say I have Kubuntu 12.04. Should work for all versions _ubutnu 12.04.
