Re: How to extract the content of the Knoppix 5.3.0 minirt.gz ?

Well after wondering what the missing 2k bytes or so were... it would
seem that because ~lib is restored as a link... whatever is below
can't be restored in the relative tree maybe.
Same with files under ~sbin.

and sbin/mount.ntfs  as well as sbin/mount.ntfs-3g are missing after
the restore to the working directory.

There's the 2k.
So that doesn't reall work to well.

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         1695 Feb  2 18:25 /lib/terminfo/l/linux
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       652380 Feb 11 17:34 /static/ntfs-3g

/sbin/mount.ntfs -> ../static/ntfs-3g
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root     root           18 Feb 16 15:51
/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g -> ../static/ntfs-3g
