Compiling with tar.bz2
I am very new to Suse/Linux and having a great deal of trouble compiling programs. I want to put tripwire on my computer, but I downloaded it as a tar.bz2 file. I don't even know how to compile that to get started.
Thanks in advance,
I'm not 100% sure, but i think you can try:
tar -zxvf tar.bz2
Really close. tar -xvzf works for tar.gz files (the order of the options x, v, z, and f doesn't matter, except the f should be last). For tar.bz2 files, you need a j in place of the z.
Ex: tar -xvjf filename.tar.bz2
Then go into the directory that it creates, and look at the INSTALL file. It'll have instructions on how to compile and install the program.Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
