problems extracting

hello all,
I just downloaded Xampp, and so far im very impressed. But i have run into some problems wen running the extract comand. When i run this comand:
Code: Select all
 tar -xvzf xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt
I get this error:
Code: Select all
tar: xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Any ideas? Im running Fedora Core. Any help would be very apreciated!
Thanks in advance,

Where is the xampp tar file, and where are you running the extract command from?
By the looks of it, you might have to specify the location (path) of where you stored the tar file, or run the command from that folder.

Code: Select all
 tar -xvfz /tmp/xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz -C /opt
if the xampp-linux-1.5.1.tar.gz is in the /tmp/ folder, for instance.

Hope this helps
