I follow intallation instruction, to install wildfire on a Sun Sollaris box.
When i tried:
“tar -xzvf wildfire_3_0_1.tar.gz”, it ends up with an error say “tar: z: unknown function modifier”.
To overcome the problem i use gunzip command to unzip “wildfire_3_0_1.tar.gz” to “wildfire_3_0_1.tar”
then “tar -xzvf wildfire_3_0_1.tar”, this time it is unpacked properly with no error. But when i look into the
subdirectory wildfire/lib, there is no “wildfire.jar” file but “wildfire.jar.pack”, i tried to unpack the “wildfire.jar.pack” but to no success. As i need to modify some wildfire code and do a build for unix, i need to be able to replace the wildfire.jar file with the one i build. Can i have some help on this.
Very much appriciated,
I don’'t know how much this will help, however, when I do wildfire installs on my gentoo boxen, I use the following commands to unpack the tarball:
tar -xvf wildfire_3_0_1.tar
the -z option for the tar command gzips (or gunzips, in this case) the archive. Running “gunzip (file)” before “tar -xvf (file)” does thesame thing.
You may want to blow away the created directory and source tarball, and try re-downloading wildfire, and then running gunzip and tar.
donwnload again the file and use.
gzip -dc wildfire_3_1_0_beta_2.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
just start Wildfire, it will then unpack the .jar.pack to .jar files. Using .jar.pack files enables a better compression and the jivesoftware.org guys like it.
Once again, many thanks. Everything is working now :-).
