Finding an UNTARED file.


Hello,

After untaring a mysql file (very large) I'm trying to find where the file listed below has gone.

I did a search on the file name:

fine / -name 'mysql-qui-tools-5.0' -print

but can't find the file.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

-rwxr-xr-x root/root 9651820 2007-05-02 11:46:01 mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-query-browser-bin

It's likely to be a directory, not a file. The line at the bottom of your post suggests it's in /root - were you root when you untarred it?

I had SU'd to root in a terminal screen.

I checked root and it isn't there.

[root@centos5 /]# whereis mysql-gui-tools*
mysql-gui-tools*:
[root@centos5 /]#

Doesn't look like anything came back.

I have a funny feeling that I messed up the untar.

I'm going to download the file again and repete the process after which I'll redo the 'whereis' and post the results.

Thanks all for your help.
