I can't open the tar ball and install the program


First I downloaded a file from the Internet.
The name of the tar ball is -> xcdroast-0.98alpha15.tar.gz

This file is a program to copy or burn cds.

Then I logged on to as a root user.

You usually install programs on to the /usr/local
So I moved onto the local folder



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just wrote the ls command to verify the contents of the local folder
[root@h27n2fls301o1037 local]# ls
bin/ etc/ Firfox-installation/ include/ libexec/ share/ xcdroast-0.98alpha15.tar.gz
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


[root@h27n2fls301o1037 local]# $tar xvfz xcdroast-0.98alpha15.tar.gz
-bash: xvfz: command not found

As you see the tar ball didn't expand as I expected. 'what is the reason? Could you please help me?
It says xvfz command not found. This has no meaning.

Is the path to tar visible to root? If it didn't like the argument you put for tar the error it should print is like this:

tar: invalid option -- q
Try `tar --help' for more information.

Argument zxvf is valid though. Try putting the full path to tar.

Finally, I opened the tar ball.

I made an error.

It was just writing xvfz. It should be -xvfz

I tried to install the program using the following command.

[root@h27n2fls301o1037 local]# xcdroast-0.98alpha15/INSTALL
-bash: xcdroast-0.98alpha15/INSTALL: Permission denied


After the expansion, it created a lot files. The above was the only install file. Why didn't it work? Please help me.







The following is the long list of files it created after the expansion.

this is an extract from the doc. om linux user group

-----------
Source packages generally come in 2 compressed formats

xmms-1.2.10.tar.bz2 --compressed with bunzip(bzip)
xmms-1.2.10.tar.gz --compressed with gunzip(gzip)

and others also

1.)first of all we need to extract these packages .
so copy the packages in your Linux partition. for example in /plugins directory.
go to that directory and extract them as follows

[root@gaurav root]# cd /plugins/
[root@gaurav plugins]# tar xjf xmms-1.2.10.tar.bz2
[root@gaurav plugins]#

OR

[root@gaurav root]# cd /plugins/
[root@gaurav plugins]# tar xvzf xmms-1.2.10.tar.gz
[root@gaurav plugins]#

here we pass the arguments
xjf --for uncompressing packages of the type (.tar.bz2)
xvzf --for uncompressing packages of the type (.tar.gz)

more on these attributes can be found by

[root@gaurav root]# man tar

if the packages are in some another format then u can extract them also by
a.)copy the package in your Linux partition
b.)Right click on the package
c.)choose extract here
this method surely takes some time more that the command line version but if you are having any problems in extracting with the command line then u may proceed in this manner

2.)after packages have been extracted then u need to compile them and then install these.
you can go through a file Readme or INSTALL
in all the install readme files you will find the procedure for installing source packages
I am briefing the procedure down here

a.) go to the directory containing the extracted packages

[root@gaurav root]# cd /plugins/xmms-1.2.10
[root@gaurav xmms-1.2.10]#

b.) './configure' will check if the files necessary for installation are available or not

[root@gaurav xmms-1.2.10]# ./configure

c.)' make' will compile the package

[root@gaurav xmms-1.2.10]# make

d.)'make install' will install the executable in '/usr/local/bin' (generally)

after these you can run your new packages by their name only or by giving the full path
[root@gaurav xmms-1.2.10]# xmms

OR

[root@gaurav xmms-1.2.10]# /usr/local/bin/xmms

I thank masand for the reply. His explanation is too advanced for my knowledge of linux.

It seems I don't have a folder called plugins. I am using Mandrake Linux 10.0 version

Look at the following:

[root@h27n2fls301o1037 root]# cd /plugins
-bash: cd: /plugins: No such file or directory


[root@h27n2fls301o1037 root]# cd /plugins/
-bash: cd: /plugins/: No such file or directory


I just copied the downloaded file into the local directory. This is in turn a subdirectory under usr directory. It is my understanding that you install programs in /usr/local.

/usr/local


However, I have given you the entire bunch of directories I got after the expansion. I don't know how to go ahead.

$tar -xvzf xcdroast-0.98alpha15.tar.gz <- uncompress the file
$cd xcdroast-0.98alpha15 <- enter the folder
$./configure <- run the configure script
$make <- compile the source
$make install <- install the program (if you get errors in the compilation step don'tproceed)
$cd .. <- go to the previous folder
$rm -fr xcdroast-0.98alpha15 <- delete the uncompressed folder (you don't need it any more)
$mv xcdroast-0.98alpha15.tar.gz <somewhere where you kkep your setups> <- move the tar ball somewhere where you keep your setups

the program will be installed where the makefile wants, moving the source in a specific directory is pointless.

$./configure
do
Code:
less INSTALL
to read the instalation notes

Thanks perfect_circle
I am reading all your instructions to understand every step you wanted to execute. I will do it and come back to you. This might take a several hours.

Then I ran the make {/B} command. It didn't work. The following is the output
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[heden@h27n2fls301o1037 xcdroast-0.98alpha15]$ $make{/B]
bash: {/B]: No such file or directory

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our friend perfect_circle asked me to run this B command. Why it didn't work? Please help me.

Masand and Perfect_cirlcle helped me a lot. Still I have problems to install this program.

This tarball is a program to burn and copy CDs. The name of the tar ball is xcdroast-0.98alpha15.tar.gz.

If you read the reply of the Perfect_circle, you will read the following:

$make{/B]

The above doesn't work. I don't know what is the meaning of /B here.

He asked to run the command $./configure. This worked fine

Please help me. I need urgent help. So please help me.

Masand, thanks for the reply. I ran the make command and the following is the output.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[heden@h27n2fls301o1037 xcdroast-0.98alpha15]$ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why didn't the make command gave me this strange answer?

hey and it looks from ur configure script that u do not have glibc installed

for mandrake there is a command

i do not know it exaclty

urmpi glibc
or
urmfi glibc

this will install glibc autonatically and ask for CDs from u as of required
and also try this command for ur xcdroast
maybe it might be bundled alomg with ur distro CD

regards
