    Can you run these commands on the shell?

    cd /home/rpmbuild/rpmbuild/BUILD
    rm -rf Unreal3.2.8.1
    /bin/gzip -dc /home/rpmbuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/Unreal3.2.8.1.tar.gz
    tar -xf -
    What's the output of
    ls -la

    I also tried

    /bin/gzip -dc /home/rpmbuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/Unreal3.2.8.1.tar.gz
    tar -xf -

    as two separate commands but it made my terminal spit out this ridiculous wall of text that kept going and going :s

    Yes, it must be two separate commands.

    Did you see any errors at the end?

    Can you post the output of
    ls -la

    [rpmbuild@vps BUILD]$ ls -la
    total 16
    drwxrwxr-x 2 rpmbuild rpmbuild 4096 Dec 29 03:23 .
    drwxrwxr-x 6 rpmbuild rpmbuild 4096 Dec 27 01:23 ..
    as for errors, the whole thing looked like it was spitting out the entire unreal source code into my terminal and this process took about 5-7 minutes

    the last part of it looked like this

    Just type: ./unreal start
    Note that after booting the errors are usually logged to ircd.log,
    so check that file if you have any problems.
    Again, check the FAQ (and docs) if you have any boot problems.
    [rpmbuild@vps BUILD]$ 62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c62;9;c
    I would include the whole thing but the scrollback buffer on my terminal was far exceeded and i dont think a pastebin would do it.
