Extracting using tar command in unix
Posted on 2012-03-16
I tried to extract downloads.tgz. It got a fair way through the unpack and then died with the following error:
tar: downloads: Cannot utime: Operation not permitted
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
I tried a simple tar --list -f downloads.tgz
and it breaks with an error tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors after exactly the same file.
Does anyone know why this could be? Running FreeBSD 7.3-RELEASE-p2 as a normal user, (not root).
