You want to use "tar xzf filename". "x" is for extract, "z" is for filtering through gzip and "f" is to specify the file. You can also put a "v" in there for verbose output.

You also mean "wondering".

Then when you've tar -xzvf'ed it, look in the resulting directory for README and INSTALL files - read them.

Thanks for the help guys. I ran it and am having a problem with configuring it
checking for gpg_strerror in -lgpg-error... no
configure: error: You need to have libgpg-error.a installed to use libgcrypt.
I am not sure what package libgpg-error.a is a part of. Any ideas?

Any particular reason why you want it install from source? Normally one should use the package management to install software.

I'm not sure how many OS's have an rpm already for aide, I checked with yum and it doesn't find it.

Personally I perfer compiling on the server from source, I've ran into issues before with other softwares when using an RPM or just copying the binary.

In this case he probably needs to install a libgpg-error-something package.

Rpmseek has it. Why you think OP has RPM based distro?

Edit: Debian has it. Gentoo has it in Portage, FBSD has it in ports. IMO rather hard is to find a distro that doesn't have it.
