I have tar-1.13.11-1.i386.rpm on my Linux box.
1) when I type "tar -x filename.tar", the machine just hangs. I did an uninstal in the RPM and then reinstalled it. It was not the fix. How d0 I get tar to work? gzip works, but not with my tar files.
2) My other simpler question is what does the i386..i586 and so on stand for in the Linux pachages? Does it mean Intel 386???
