Hi Thomas

zypper in tar is working fine.
But i am look specifically for gtar package.
When i do zypper in gtar , its showing No provider of 'gtar' found.

gtar seem to be a solaris package, it's basically the same as tar on linux, if not can you explain what the difference is?

In addition to Thomas' answer (gtar = GNU tar) I've seen a reference to
..gtar files so perhaps you're wanting to extract from a gzipped tar
file? If so, you can use tar with -z option.
