operation not permitted
After many attempts to untar several source packages (xine,icewm,modem drivers,etc...) i get along the way some messages like this one:
tar:icewm-1.2.13/lib/themes/nice/menubuttonA.xpm:Cannot change ownershipto uid1 1701 ,gid 1701: operation not permitted
and i just cant install the package, why is that ?
thanks for your attention !
Are you downloading as root then trying to untar as a user?
ls -l pkgname.tar.gz what does that show?
Have you recently installed the tar app?
I always download under windows(unfortunately) and untar as root
and i get out of ls -l pkgname.tar.gz:
/bin/ls : no such file or directory
(something like that, i am going back to linux and then back to windows cause i cant connect under linux so some info gets 'lost' on the way)
about the tar app it came on the slack 8.1 cd so i guess the answer is no
