Problem in unziping tarballs
I have a tarball filename.tar
I have tried tar xvzf filename.tar
I have tried tar -xvzf filename.tar
In both cases I get the following error
gzip: stdin not in gzip format
tar: Child returned with status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
I tried file filename.tar and got the following message
filename.tar: GNU tar archive
Now here is the cliche
I used the Archiving tool available with Red Hat 8.0 and it extracted the tarball with absolutely no problem. The software is also working perfectly.
Why am I unable to extract this archive through the command line
