I've tried several invocations of the OEM tar to create LZMA-compressed tarballs. More specifically, I tried:
tar -c -f --lzma Windows\ 7.vmwarevm.tar.lzma Windows\ 7.vmwarevm
My efforts created an archive with filename
--lzma, and tar complained of
Cannot stat: No such file or directory, probably for the same reason:
--lzma was taken as the filename of the archive to be created, and consequently the actual intended archive name was taken to be the first in a list of arguments to include in the archive.
I thought after some searching that MacOS had not included it in the provided options, and built GNU tar from scratch, storing it under another name in
/usr/local/bin. However, my efforts to use the above invocation with the renamed and newly built
tar had the same effect: I was building an archive in
My computer has a seemingly working
What invocation(s) should I use, perhaps piping
lzma and perhaps in a script to do the work of "tar czf foo.tgz foo", but uses
lzma instead of
gzip for compression?
