ok, as a test.
[root localhost snort]# tar --directory=/ --owner=root -xzvf



The --owner option is for *created* files -- you're extracting.


To extract, try "--no-same-owner". But also, don't get in the habit of
extracting tarballs as root unless keeping ownership and permissions is
exactly what you intend to do.



Hi All,

yes, of course, but, it's handy to have the option. Example, when downloading/installing phpmyadmin, I had to cp the tar.gz to /var/www/html, cd into the html dir, extract, then rm the tar.gz. Much faster to just tar with the options --directory= and --no-same-name and then it's just a matter of cd'ing into the new directory..cheers.
