I always used to use this command to extract files from a bzip2 tar ball:
tar xjvf file.tar.bz2
But right now on Ubuntu 14.04, I get this error:
tar: Conflicting compression options Try 'tar --help' or 'tar --usage' for more information.
Did something change or is this a bug?
EDIT: I think there might be a bug. I just tried running it through
bunzip2 first, and then extracting everything from the resulting tar ball, and got this:
$ tar xvf file.tar tar (child): pbzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
EDIT2: This is what I get after installing
$ tar xf file.tar pbzip2: producer_decompress: *ERROR: when reading bzip2 input stream Terminator thread: premature exit requested - quitting... tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
