Re: Not sure about Office?
Your comments put a question as to your claimed 'accomplishments' or which architectures you worked on. For example;
Your arguments for 'tar', there is no option 'y'. However the command:
"tar -xvfz dev/os3/archive/dimsungapp.tar.gz"
Would work - however someone who has worked on Linux and or Unix type architectures would know that. The 'tar' command listed above would extract to current directory unless the files in the 'tar' archive are full path. BTW; tar stands for 'tape archive' - it also has the ability to write to a file as well as a tape drive ie /dev/rmt0, /dev/scsi/0/rmt0... etc depending upon OS variant and generation. After you have extracted the contents of a tar archive, you would not need to copy the tape archive to another directory as in;
"cp dev/os3/archive/dimsungapp.tar.gz /dev/os3/opentext/datatech.pkg"
Or did you mean to copy the contents of the current directory where you extracted the tar file to that new location? That would be;
"cp -r . /dev/os3/opentext/datatech.pkg"
Though considering that install packages 'pkg' are self contained compressed items, I don't see why the need for putting it into or extracting it from a 'tar' file - as well as compressing the tar file. You could install the package directly.
Your comment that sudo is a weird name for a installer(install program) is complete bullocks. 'sudo' is a way to run something as an administrator when you currently aren't. Some people think it stands for 'Super User Do' or run as a super user. In reality it allows you to run a program as any other user than your current user id (provided you have the correct creds). A better way to think of it is 'Set UserId and Do'. The rest of the line following sudo is the actual install command for the package - however also invalid. The tar and copy being unnecessary. 'apt-get' normally doesn't install from a file name, therefore your example below is invalid;
"sudo apt-get install /dev/os3/opentext/datatech.pkg"
Would actually be
"sudo apt-get install datatech.rpm"
NOTE: the suffix is actually rpm for packages handled by the Advanced Package Tool, and it will actually do a download and install. If you want to install a package from a file that has already been downloaded.. it is a different command.
StargateSg7, I think you cobbled up some crap that you thought would fly by people and then threw it out there; nope -doesn't work.
BTW: Most Linux's have a GUI interface for their package managers.
