I've fallen and I can't get up
« on: August 09, 2004, 08:13:47 pm »
It seems that immature, irrelevant subjects get the most traffic and responses, so I thought I would try it.

I am trying to fix the emasculated Kino2 that comes with Cacko and I need to extract some binaries from the Kino2 ipkg. I don't know if it is gz or ar format. I tried extracting it using 7zip on my windoze machine and with gunzip and ar -x on my Linux box. No joy. I would appreciate some help.

Use the file command to find out whether it is a gz or ar package.

# ls kino2_0.21_arm.ipk
kino2_0.21_arm.ipk
# file kino2_0.21_arm.ipk
kino2_0.21_arm.ipk: gzip compressed data, was "kino2_0.21_arm.ipk", from Unix, max compression
# mkdir kino2
# cd kino2/
# tar zxvf ../kino2_0.21_arm.ipk
./debian-binary
./data.tar.gz
./control.tar.gz
# tar zxvf data.tar.gz
