    tar: cannot open: OOo_1.0.3.1_LinuxIntel_install.tar


    I downloaded Open Office from one of their mirror sites and when I try to open the tar file with the following command;

    tar xf OOo_1.0.3.1_LinuxIntel_install.tar

    I receive the following message;

    tar: cannot open: OOo_1.0.3.1_LinuxIntel_install.tar

    When I use this command;

    "tar -zxvf [tarball name]".

    tar fails to recognize the switches running SCO 5.0.7

    What to do?

    O.K I solved opening the tar file by first gunzipping the file and then using the following command switches.\;

    tar xvf OOo_1.0.3.1_LinuxIntel_install.tar
