Posted: December 14, 2009 in Linux

.tar.gz files in linux are also called as tarball files.

These files are just codes. By using these files we can install the software.

For this there are two phases

1. extraction

2.compilation

we can extract the files using a graphical tools and we can compile to install the software.

The advantage of the .tar.gz file is that it does not need internet connection to install the softwares.
