Can Someone explain what is wrong with this question, and why any discussion is shut like that by moderators or community leaders?
I am facing this problem, extracting an archive and the tar returns these errors. I wget the archive. move it to a folder and try to extract it, when I extracted in home directory where I downloaded it did extract, creating a mess, but when moved same command no longer works.
$ tar xvf ArchLinuxARM-rpi-latest.tar.gz 1: /home/user/bin/gzip: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")") tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
sidenote: I hope codinghorror writes more on how to live in a community or much simply, find the answers you might be looking for when you are just shut down for not having reputation or duplicate tagging, closing questions.
