Hey everyone, I recently downloaded my first Linux OS -- Slax
I tried installing a few programs such as WICD, AMSN and XCHAT all of which I had to get the tarball files and I'm having trouble unpacking and installing them.
I can never get past the first step of unpacking the tarballs, when I tried WICD and AMSN I ran the unpacking command listed in the 'how to' install all that happened was when I ran the command, the command screen would go away and nothing would happen. The file did not unpack.
The most recent program XCHAT that I tried to install I had a little more luck, when I ran the command:
root@slax:~# tar -xjvf xchat-x.x.x.tar.bz2
it gave me the error message:
tar: xchat-x.x.x.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Anyone have any idea why it's not working?
