Hi guys, hope someone can help, i did the download to desktop then went to terminal entered su got root then got this.

jam@jam-desktop:~$ su
root@jam-desktop:/home/jam# tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.7.tar.gz -c /opt
tar: You may not specify more than one `-Acdtrux' or `--test-label' option
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.

It all sounds easy how to install until i try it. hahaha
Anyone got ideas?
Thank you.

"capitalization counts" in linux

tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.7.tar.gz -C /opt

also had you changed directories to the folder where the download was located??? - if not, you needed the full path.

-c, --create
create a new archive

-C, --directory=DIR
change to directory DIR

Good Luck
