Question don't have premissing


I'm tring to extract a file using tar-zxvf <filename>.tar.gz. The first time i got the user isn't something 1000 uid. So i created a user with a uid of 1000 then i went to extract the file again but i got the message "user don't have premission" or something like that. I then tried it as root and the message came up "you don't have a 1000 uid". I really need some help with this one

the file i'm tring to extract is wireless_tools.25.tar.gz.

What user are you trying to run it as and what permissions are on the file:
ls -l /path/to/<filename>.tar.gz

ok I'm tried to do it as root and as Lashaun ( which is the only user i created besides the other user with 1000 uid )

this is the information i got when i ls -l the file

[lashaun@localhost lashaun]$ ls -l /mnt/win_d/Linux\ stuff/wireless_tools.25.tar.gz
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 102568 May 7 16:47 /mnt/win_d/Linux stuff/wireless_tools.25.tar.gz*

It's say's root but i did it as root and got the message do not have premission.

I even tried tar -xvfo <filename>.tar.gz
tar -zxvfo
and tar -zxvfp

no luck

copy that file to the user home directory and try to untar it

i think as you are trying to untar it in the /mnt partition it is not giving you the permission as it is the windows partition

its just a hunch, but try and copy it and try the command
