What am I doing wrong here with CPIO?
Can anyone help with my so far unsuccessful efforts to install Tivowebplus 1.2.1? I'm trying to install it into a Tivo PVR which I believe runs GNU Linux.
I can't seem to get it to install. I've downloaded it and gzipped it to my /var/hack folder, and it has expanded okay to the file 'tivowebplus-1.2.1.tar'.
But when I Telnet (from my Windows XP machine) and run what I believe is the correct install command it just lists out the various directories of the Tivowebplus file and gives me the error message 'no such file or directory' at the end of each line.
I'm running the command '/bin/cpio -H tar -i < tivowebplus-1.2.1.tar' from the /var/hack directory.
I know nothing about Linux so it may be that my sources of info have some error in the punctuation of the Linux command line.
Can anyone help?
Any advice gratefully received.
