Fedora Core 4 .shar file help


Hello guys and gals
I have exhausted several hours trying to install cubepanel
Ive tried opening in terminal
Ive tried opening in shell (which im not sure think it might be same thing)
here is the top part of my script that tells me nothing really

#!/bin/sh
# This is a shell archive (produced by GNU sharutils 4.2.1).
# To extract the files from this archive, save it to some FILE, remove
# everything before the `!/bin/sh' line above, then type `sh FILE'.
#
# Made on 2005-12-14 12:49 CET by <root@cuberepo>.
# Source directory was `/var/repository/cube_foundry/linux_fc3/installer/working/trunk'.
#
# Existing files will *not* be overwritten unless `-c' is specified.
#

Anyone have any pointers ??

Thanks in advance

here's a pointer... tell us what your problem actually is, not just asking for help with it, whatever "it" is.

well you just run it. but if it's not executable then you'd need to pass it as a parameter to sh, e.g. "sh file.shar" or "sh < file.shar" in a terminal
