Here is the error when I tried to load a tar file:

File mode specification error: (error "Buffer format not recognized")

Here is the error when I tried to load a gz file:

Loading jka-compr...done
uncompressing allegro-1-connect-four-20070702-165627.tar.gz...done
File mode specification error: (error "Buffer format not recognized")

Note that I really mean tar file not TAR file
                                                                and gz
file not GZ file.

Thanks for your help.
