tar is not extracting all files


Hi,

I have an tar.gz file which when right click extract here on my ubuntu computer is extracted without issue. I have all the folders and all the files (links and one executable) in them.
But when i transfert this tar.gz to another system and use the command :
Code:
tar zxvf nameofthefile.tar.gz
I see in the terminal things like that :
Code:
usr/bin/unzip/lzop        
usr/bin/xargsbin/mountpoin
usr/bin/telnet
bin/pipe_prog
usr/bin/lzma        
bin
usr/bin/sort
which mean that the files must be extracted but when using "ls" intot he folders they are empty. All the links are not here and only the executable is extracted.

When i copy back the archive from the new system to my ubuntu system and extract it all the files are here without issue. Why is it only creating the folders and not extracting the links ?
