Fresh install of CentOS 5.4
Downloaded the following:
MD5 sum is correct (
cdcc09d71d85d81914a90413eaf21d3f). The file is located here:
webmin-1.510.tar.gz both have
chmod 777. I am logged in as root.
tar -zxfv webmin-1.510.tar
tar: v: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: webmin-1.510.tar: Not found in archive tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Never run across this before. It's like it thinks that
v is a file I want to extract, but its one of the command arguments...
If I leave out the
tar -zxf webmin-1.510.tar.gz
The command stalls. It doesn't do anything. Just goes to the next line and no prompt comes up. I have to CTRL-C to get back to the prompt and a
ls verifies that it didn't extract anything...
My first reaction is that its not a valid tar/gz file or something. But the MD5 matches just fine. So I'm at a loss just a bit...
Wow. Never new that the order of the arguments mattered. Wonder why I've never noticed it after all these years.
However I just tried
tar -zxvf webmin-1.510.tar.gz
And the terminal is still stalled and I have to CTRL-C to get a prompt again. And to reiterate myself, if I
ls there is NO
webmin-1.510 directory after this procedure. Nothing is extracted.
I also just gunzipp'ed the file, so now I have a
webmin-1.510.tar. I just tried the following:
tar -xvf webmin-1.510.tar
And again, same result. The command stalls the terminal and I have to CTRL-C to get a prompt. Nothing extracted.
