I don't understand why the following doesn't work:

tar -xzfv opera-7.51-20040602.1-static-qt.i386-en.tar.gz


Use "tar -xzvf opera-7.51-20040602.1-static-qt.i386-en.tar.gz"
              ^^^^

What follows the "f" is the name of the file to process. Anything following that are the contents of the tar file to extract.

gives:

tar (child): v: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: opera-7.51-20040602.1-static-qt.i386-en.tar.gz: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

what am i doing wrong, please?

the manual page on tar doesn't help much..

thanks,
