Unable to Extract
 
I am unable to extract ts2perlmod.tar.bz2, It says there is no file or directory. Any ideas why this isn't working?
Running Debian 4.0

rgteamspeak:/home/ts# ls
ts2perlmod.tar.bz2
rgteamspeak:/home/ts# tar -jxvf ts2perlmod.tar.bz2
tar: bzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
rgteamspeak:/home/ts#

Did you try unzipping (bunzip2 ts2perlmod.tar.bz2) it first and then untarring it?

The -j option is supposed to bzip2 or bunzip2, but your installation of tar is obvioulsy interpreting -j as bzip2 only

So, as pljvaldez suggests, try it the old way and bunzip2 it.

On second thought, do you have bzip2 installed?

rgteamspeak:/home/ts# ls
ts2perlmod.tar.bz2
rgteamspeak:/home/ts# bunzip2 ts2perlmod.tar.bz2
-bash: bunzip2: command not found
rgteamspeak:/home/ts#

Looks like you need the bzip2 package installed.
