Tar: Cannot open: File exists
When extracting a tar file, tar exits with the error message:
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Moving up through the list of files, I see this error:
tar: CHANGELOG.php: Cannot open: File exists
$> tar --version tar (GNU tar) 1.16
The directory in which CHANGELOG.php is extracted, doesn't have write permissions for non-root user `me':
$> ls -ld . drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 4096 2007-09-21 21:33 .
Allowing writes fixes tar:
$> sudo chmod o+w .
