OpenBSD + bz2 files


I know this MUST be a simple thing but I've tried looking it up and can't find what I need.

Basically I'm trying to do:

tar jxvf xxxxxx.bz2

but I receive:

tar: unknown option j

so I try yxvf xxxxx.bz2

but I receive:

tar: unknown option y

I think I haven't got something installed but I'm not sure what, where to get it from nor how to install it.

Do it in two steps.

bunzip2 xxxxxx.bz2
tar xvf xxxxx.tar

I think you could also pipe it... but I wouldn't bother if you have the space.

Ah... see there's the problem:

bunzip2: Command not found

Presumably meaning bunzip2 isn't installed? How do I install it and where from?

Thanks for your quick reply.

[code]pkg_add ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3....zip2-1.0.2.tgz

This will install the bzip2 utilities.

Edit: Sorry... I can't seem to make that link expand.

/pub/OpenBSD/3.6/packages/i386/bzip2-1.0.2.tgz
ftp://ftp.openbsd.org in front of it.

Ok, I did the pkg_add and then rebooted.

Now I enter:

bunzip2 xxxx.tar.bz2

and get:

bunzip2: can't load library 'libc.so.30.3'

Okay... you should have needed to reboot. Also, did you install the package from the link before I edited it or after? Because if it was before then you probably installed the wrong binary. Do a pkg_delele of it and install the i386 binary.

What probably happens is it is looking for a library you don't have... oops... let me edit it one more time to point to 3.6 as well. I clearly wasn't paying attention when I hit the ftp tree this morning.

ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3....zip2-1.0.2.tgz

pkg_add that link and it should work. Sorry about the misdirection there. I don't know where my mind is... probably need sleep since I have been working all night.

I swear this should be an easy process....

I just pkg_delete'd the bunzip2 pkg.

Then I re pkg_add'd the CORRECT file. I figured out what the url compression was but blindly followed the 3.5 link the first time... made sure it was 3.6 this time.

bunzip2 maildrop-1.8.0.tar.bz2
bunzip2: maildrop-1.8.0.tar.bz2 is not a bzip2 file.

Okay... well... bunzip2 is working... or at least not giving an error.

What does "file maildrop-1.8.0.tar.bz2" give you?

Is there any reason you need 1.8.0 and can't use the 1.5.3 version that is supported in the ports for OpenBSD?

ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3....drop-1.5.3.tgz

file maildrop-1.8.0.tar.bz2 said it was an HTML document... hmm... could be onto something there

I've just downloaded the version from the ports.

Thanks for your help - where I can find a search function for the ports? For example I had a fair idea I needed bunzip2 but didn't know where to find it within the ports. I'm a user of Gentoo also and Gentoo has the
'emerge -s bunzip2' option which will list closes matches that are listed in the emerge tree. Is there a similar option in OpenBSD?

Thanks again,

Gsee

http://www.openbsd.org/3.6_packages/i386.html

This is the list of packages for OpenBSD 3.6

You can find them all in the directory of the ftp link I provided above.

How big is that file you have? I'm sure you could get 1.8.0 if you really needed it, you would just need to make sure you downloaded the right thing.

As for a way to search them... you could install the ports tree or something. To be honest, I don't have OpenBSD currently installed and I haven't ever installed it on a machine which I used for an extended period of time. Not because it is bad but I just have really weak machines to test stuff on (I actually need to use my desktop computer so FreeBSD is safe on it).

Not sure how big the file was. I've deleted it. Now all I need to do is find out where I'm suppoed to run the make command for this version of maildrop. I'm following a guide to setup qmail and the guide tells me how to use maildrop-1.8.0 hence why I was trying to use it. They told me where to get it from but as we've found out, the file they send me to was a HTML file.

I cp's the maildrop file into a dir called /package/maildrop and then did a:
tar xvf maildrop-1.5.3.tgz

what's the general rule of thumb to now find where to run the
./configure
make
make install?

Sorry to be a pain and thanks for your help

You don't need to untar it... it is a package. Just use the pkg_add command like you did for bzip2

pkg_add /package/maildrop/maildrop-1.5.3.tgz

---
EDIT: You really aren't being a pain at all. You are giving me something to do while I wait out the clock here at my work. Another hour before I can get home to sleep. And I have got to keep my mind active somehow.
