Hi i am running linux red hat 7.2 i belive im trying to extract this file but it wont let me tried various option.
Can any ine give me a clue? Ive never tried exracting a bz2 file before so Im sure that has something to do with it. I also got the file twice so I eliminated the corupt possibility. blink.gif

(~)$ tar -xf ts2_server_rc2_201940.tar.bz2
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Thanks for the help i looked it over and got a bad response

(~)$ buznip2 -dv ts2_server_rc2_201940.tar.bz2
bash: buznip2: command not found

tried the man buznip2 and it just said it couldnt find that either unsure.gif

Any more ideas?

This is my system im using putty to get into:

Red Hat Linux release 7.2 (Enigma)
Kernel 2.4.18-18.7.x on an i686
Looks like you don't have bzip2 installed on that machine.

You can download it from or it should be on your cdrom if you still have it.

The file you'll want is bzip2-1.0.1-4.i386.rpm
great i just figured it out i looked into a online documentation site i found referance in the books for neebies thread...

I ran

(~)$ bzip2 -d ts2_server_rc2_201940.tar.bz2

then a

(~)$ tar -xf ts2_server_rc2_201940.tar

and it worked thanks for the help it got me in the rite direction biggrin.gif
