At any *.tar.gz unpacking i (as root) receive this kind of error message:
The thing is that, in the end, file roller unpacks that *.tar.gz file...What is wrong and what should i do?
An error occurred while extracting files.
Cannot change ownership to uid 500, gid 500: Operation not permitted
Error exit delayed from previous errors
what command are you using to unpack it like what options are you using with tar?
i use file roller...so i just click the extract button and that`s it
Try tar zxvpf <filename>.tar.gz in a shell
it`s the same thing ....And i tell you it`s the same thing for all *.tar.gz files, not only for one
wat r the ownerships of the .tar.gz files? who has uid 500 in your passwd file?
in my passwd file, my user has uid 500, not the root.What shall i do?
Dont bother unpacking them as the root user do these steps instead:
as normal user:
tar -xvjf /home/me/myfile.tar.bz2 or for tar.gz files use:
tar -xvzf /home/me/myfile.tar.gz
this will create the directory:
/home/me/myfile/ so CD to it:
Only now do you become root:
