Authentication Failure

Postby Davethewave » 21. December 2010 10:05

I read the install instructions but when I say su it asks for password.
I type in my password but it says Authentication Failure.

How do I get around this?

I am using Ubuntu 10.10

*Edit* Nevermind... I used sudo passwd and gave su a password but now when I type tar xcfz xampp.gz -C /opt it tells me

Tar: You may not specify more than one `Acdtrux` or `--test-label` option Try `tar --help` or `tar --usage' for more information.

what does this mean :|

It means you typed something wrong.

x and c are both archive commands; you can only use one at a time.

f will be looking for an archive named z since z immediately follows f

If you want to extract something maybe you should try:

Code: Select all
tar xzf xampp.tgz -C /opt
