Extracting the file (very newb and quick question)


I’ve always used linux with a GUI, but I don;t want to use a GUI since it will be a server.

Anyways I downloaded asterisk using the wget command but now I don’t know how to extract it, can you please tell me the command for extracting .tar.gz files?

BTW I’m using CentOS 4.4

Thank You

it’s all in the wiki !!

cd /usr/src tar zxvf /path.to/asterisk.tarball/asterisk-1.4.0.tar.gz cd /asterisk-1.4.0 ./configure make menuselect make make install make samples
