The console mode worked fine, thanks.

Ark is giving me the error:
"An Error occurred when trying to open the archive"

I can't think why. Does ark do it fine for you guys?

Thanks for the fast replies,
Riddick

Dont know about Ark--is it supposed to open tar files only or tar.*z files.
When you unzip at the command line, are you running as root?

I want to note that the above can be accomplished with:
Code:
gunzip -c <filename> | tar -xvf -
and for GNU versions of tar, you can just do:
Code:
tar -xzvf <filename>
