Extracting SuperKaramba


I'm running Mandrake 10.0 with KDE, and trying to extract superkaramba-0.34-1.tar.gz by typing:

tar -zxvf superkaramba-0.34-1.tar.gz cd superkaramba-0.34-1

When I do (this is as root), I get this:

tar: cd: Not found in archive
tar: superkaramba-0.34-1: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I'm following the install instructions on the SuperKaramba site, but they don't seem to be doing much good >.<. Given, it doesn't help that I'm a newbie. Help, please?

They left out ';'. You're going to need this so you can execute two different commands. Right now the tar command is parsing, 'cd' since you don't have the ';' appended between the two commands.

Try this:
Quote:
tar -zxvf super*.tar.gz; cd super*-1
I appended the '*' wildcard so the shell would read the file and understand the characters after 'r' and before '-'. =) Hope this helps.

Hmm... Well, that did do something, apparently .

[root@localhost superkaramba-0.34-1]# tar -zxvf super*.tar.gz; cd super*-1
tar (child): super*.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
bash: cd: super*-1: No such file or directory

Sadly, it wasn't the right something!
I've already created the superkaramba-0.34-1 directory, so the files have a place to go once extracted, but it's still not working for me.

Check the directory for the file name exactly. I'm kind of showing you blind here. Is the file in the directory at all?

Let's see... I've moved super*-1.tar.gz into the super*-1 directory.

[root@localhost superkaramba-0.34-1]# dir
superkaramba-0.34 superkaramba-0.34-1.tar.gz

And when I used

tar -zxvf superkaramba-0.34-1.tar.gz

I got a huge set of errors, here are the last three:

tar: ./superkaramba-0.34/subdirs: Cannot change ownership to uid 501, gid 501: Operation not permitted
./superkaramba-0.34/TODO
tar: ./superkaramba-0.34/TODO: Cannot change ownership to uid 501, gid 501: Operation not permitted
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Should I try typing in the whole filename?

Well the directory should be there now, as it says right there =) Just forget the -1.

Quote:
superkaramba-0.34 superkaramba-0.34-1.tar.gz
The directories name is, superkaramba-0.34.

Thanks for all the help there. I found an RPM of SuperKaramba, but I think it would've worked with that souce had I known had (which I'm pretty sure I now do). Thanks very much
