Jennifer Zelazny June 27, 2006 0 Comments While upgrading a client’s web site to XOOPS 2.0.14 I ran into some issues with the XOOPS 2.0.14 package file (a tar.gz file). Stuffit Expander would only extract a few folders, then report an error and quit. After a few attempts, and all failures, I had to chose to turn to the command line and bingo, no problems! So, if you ever have any issues with Stuffit Expander and need to uncompress a .tar.gz file, the following commands will come in handy: To uncompress a gz file: gunzip file.gz To uncompress a tar file: tar [tar options (usually xvf)] file.tar To uncompress a .tar.gz file: tar xzvf file.tar.gz Questions? Check out the man pages for tar and gunzip.
