how do you install tar.bz2 files?
 
Hi im just wondering how you install tar.bz2 files, I'm pretty new to linux. My OS is SuSE 9.1. Thanks for any help.

Uncompress the .tar.bz2 with:

tar -xjvf <filename>

then change to the directory that the file uncompressed. There will probably be a README and/or an INSTALL file detailing how to install the program. If you downloaded the program's source, you will most like wind up running ./configure, make, and make install.
