Error when opening .tar.gz via Shell to install Apache Maven
Mac OSX 10.5.8 32-bit.
What I Did:
Downloaded a .tar.gz file, and using the shell, moved it to a directory (using mv) I created for it (using mkdir), usr/local/apache-maven per the website directions I downloaded the file apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz. Next I tried extracting the file using tar -zxvf apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz.
I get an error message when I try to extract the apache-maven .gz (install?) file in shell.
tar: apache-maven-3.0.4/direcoryandfile: Cannot open: No such file or directory ... apache-maven-3.0.4/lib/ext: Cannot mkdir: No such file or directory apache-maven-3.0.4/lib/ext/README.txt tar: apache-maven-3.0.4/lib/ext/README.txt: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
For the maven building
- Extract the distribution archive, i.e. apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz to the directory you wish to install Maven 3.0.4... The subdirectory apache-maven-3.0.4 will be created from the archive. ...
for the JUNG installation
Appendix: How to Build JUNG
Download and install maven2 from maven.apache.org: http://maven.apache.org/download.html. At time of writing (early June 2012), the latest version was maven-3.0.4. Install the downloaded maven2 (there are installation instructions on the Maven website).
Follow the installation instructions and confirm a successful installation by typing 'mvn --version' in a command terminal window.
From what I can tell the archive file is missing some directories or something. I tried deleting the file, redownloading the .tar.gz file from a different mirror and repeating the process. Same result. Thanks again for the help
I'm trying to install the JUNG package to my system's Java, so I can write object-oriented code using various GUIs (Ecliplse, Dr. Java) using the classes in JUNG. I don't understand how the building/installing process works, and how I can get what I build/install to work on various GUIs and the command line. I'm new to shell and the command line, and mostly have experience using a simple IDE (DrJava, Python IDLE, R GUI) to write and compile object-oriented code.
To unpack a tar.gz archive you need to do it either in two steps:
gunzip apache-maven-3.0.4.tar.gz tar -xf apache-maven-3.0.4.tar
or you might try to do it in a single step:
tar -zxf apache-maven-3.0.4.tar.gz
Two Step Process: 1. Extract the .tar from the .tar.gz using gunzip, and -v for having gunzip print what its doing. gunzip -v apache-maven-3.0.4.tar.gz 2. Extract the .tar file using tar, -x for telling the program to do an extraction, -v for having tar print what its doing, and -f for tar to know that the following file is the archive and appending with sudo so tar has permission to create directories. sudo tar -xvf apache-maven-3.0.4.tar
