Anyone know how to open following file ?

rhel-rg-en-4.tbz


This is like a zip file in Windows, in that it contains a bunch of files collected together and then compressed.

You can extract the files like this:
$ tar xvfj rhel-rg-en-4.tbz
You'll see the names of the files as they are extracted.

(the "$" above represents the shell prompt - the command you type starts with "tar")

Paul.



the "f" argument must be last before filename (which is what the f stands for) with tar, so use instead

tar xjvf rhel-rg-en-4.tbz



You haven't tried it the other way, have you Scott ;-)


Paul.


Paul:

Not in ages! In fact it was probably about when I first started in Linux, around RH 7.2 or so (ah the good ol' days!) Even then, I probably just read that in a book. Come to think of it, I don't think I've touched more than 1 .bz file in the last year. Thanks Paul
