If you want good answers, learn to ask good Q's.

We need more info. to help you:
  1. Provide a link to the d/l site.
  2. Tell us what form you d/l'd -- .rpm, tarball, .deb, etc.
  3. Why didn't you use YAST to do this?

Since each distro provides its own package manager, wouldn't this be more appropriate in a SuSE forum?

I know you can't post a real link yet, but you should be able to munge it so we can use it.

I'm with you newbie! Its difficult to ask the right questions when you are totally new (like me). I find it unhelpful when people assume ANY degree of knowledge. The way you asked the question made it obvious to anyone with technical knowledge that you need an overview of the subject, or help in asking the right questions, rather than an antagonistic, condescending tone. Archtoad, sort it out.

Anyhow, I need to decompress a tar.bz2 file but dont know how.

Thanks in advance

Mark

Use "tar xjvf filename.tar.bz2". The options are as follows:

x - extract
v - verbose output (i.e. it shows you what it's doing)
j - "filter through bzip2", because the file is a bz2 archive
f - used to tell tar you want to use the specified filename.

See "man tar" for info about the other options you can use with tar.

thanks mark... i know they expect that we have a full base knowledge of the system. im completely new to linux and virtually know nothing about the system and how it works. if someone can just tell me the the steps in downloading and installing software on my computer would be very great.

We understand the concept of "knowing nothing", most of us started there, but we're not mindreaders, nor can we see your PC. Your question has to be quite specific, and if it's too simple, you are going to be referred to a howto.

Don't be so sensitive. Try to learn a little bit, even from "condescending" replies. Google "linux newbie" and try to grasp some of the very basic things on your own.

If you want to install a program from source (.tar files) don't start with something as complicated as a server.
