    MPlayer installation


    i'm following online instructions to install Mplayer but it does not like me bzip2 properly..
    after using the bzip2 command (bzip2 -cd all-20041107.tar.bz2) I get errors like this:

    this is just a small part of the whole output.

    It outputs to stdout, which is most of the times your console. Using bzip2 you will at the best create an uncompressed tar file, which you'll have to untar as well.

    Better use
    Code:
    tar -xjvf <name-of-tar.bz2>
    to do the two things with one command.

    only use bzip2 to extract a file that ends with .bz2
    For files ending in tar.bz2 or tar.gz, it's a lot simpler to just run these commands:
    For tar.bz2, replace the % with j and with tar.gz replace the % with z:
    Code:
    tar -xv%f FILENAME
    If you want it to extract to a specific directory instead of the current one, add "-C DIRECTORY" to the command.
