After downloading the provided AXP gzipped tar files for your service module, if you are using a windows environment, you might decide to untar the files with WinZip. If this choice is made, caution must be taken because WinZip has a 'TAR file smart CR/LF Conversion' feature. This conversion feature will change any text based file from LF to CRLF line formatting when using source tar files, and will corrupt the AXP files. Be sure that you uncheck this option in WinZip before you untar AXP files. For example, in WinZip version 12.0 this option is found via Options/Configuration.../Miscellaneous.
Symptoms caused by untarring an AXP platform file via WinZip with the 'TAR file smart ...' option turned on have been seen during installation of the corrupted AXP platform files onto the service module. These corrupted files typically produce error messages such as: "invalid literal for long(): PRT_SIZE" and "TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'instance' objects".
If you encounter error messages during installation such as those mentioned above, you should check the md5sum of your AXP platform files that you are attempting to install. In Linux this step is easily done by typing 'md5sum <filename>' on the command line. In windows you may need to download a program such as WinMD5Sum in order to get the md5sum value of your files.
I've provided the correct md5 sum values of a few files to use for reference. If your md5sum values do not match, then download your files again and untar the files only after unchecking the WinZip option mentioned in this blog.
