    its a gzipped tarball, it can be opened like this

    bash Code:
    #on most systems
    tar -xvvzf filename.tar.gz
    #if your version of tar doesn't support gzipped tarballs then use this
    gunzip -d filename.tar.gz | tar -xvvzf -


    it will uncompress it to the current working directory
