View Full Version : help with ExtractStream

Need some help with ExtractStream commands: Here is an except from the installation section.

The archive is relative "hack/bin" If your "hack/bin" is on "/var", then "cd /var". If your "hack/bin" is on "/", then "cd /" (and make sure the root is mounted read/write: "mount -o remount,rw /"). Finally, unarchive:

bash-2.02# cat /var/tmp/mnt/ExtractStream-0.1.tgz | gzip -dc | cpio -i -H tar

Actually I'm trying to untar ExtractStream-0.2.tgz

Ok, I get some message "unexpected end of file" (Unfortunately I'm not sitting in front of my tivo bash now)

[b]My question is which directory should I FTP the ExtractStream-0.2.tgz file?[\b]

My "hack/bin" directory is on "/var" so I put it in the /var/hack/bin

I'm not good with linux commands so any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

If you ftp'd the tarball into /var/hack/bin, then the extract command should read:

cat /var/hack/bin/ExtractStream-0.1.tgz | gzip -dc | cpio -i -H tar

Also, linux is case sensitive. So make sure you spell the file exactly the way it appears when you list the directory:

ls -l /var/hack/bin

Ok, it worked. Thanks! Check out my NFS and Samba thread. I've got questions about ExtractStream.
