    Tar help


    I have a tar where some put a "../" in the relative path in one of the files. I try to -xvf, but I get an error due to the "../" in one of the files. Is there I can extract a tar and ignore the relative path? Thanks.

    see if -C (uppercase C) helps. Also checkout the "man tar" pages on your PC.

    have fun

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
