    What to do with tar.bz2 files?


    Can someone tell me how to open tar.bz2 files and/or burn them to disk? The OS Jedi Linux is in a tar.bz2 file and I would like to check it out. Thanks!!

    you can use tar -xvfj filename.tar.bz2 or bunzip2 filename.bz2

    You don't burn TAR.BZ2 files to disc. Those are ISOs or BIN/CUEs. To extract a TAR.BZ2 file open up a console and type:

    Code:
    tar jxvf nameOfTarfile.tar.bz2

    Why don't you try it and find out? I imagine it will extract an ISO file which you'll use to burn a disc.

    I hope so. Hey, do you know if you can get the trial version of Nero (or something that will burn .isos) on Linux?

    P.S. I'm not on my Linux box right now, so I'll try it later. But any help about burning .isos would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi KonquerorPenguin,
    You can use K3b.

    With Regards,

    There is a version of Nero for Linux, but I don't know if they offer a trial. I'd personally just use the full, free version of K3B instead.

    Thinker- Will it burn .isos? I didn't see anything about that on the web page. Also, are all the requirements hard to install? I am a newbie at Linux and I need easy instructions, sorry.
