lbzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory

Posted 29 June, 2021

This is a while ago, a missing library. When trying to decompress bz2 :

# tar -xf words.bz2
tar (child): lbzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Something is missing to decompress bz2, that something is bzip2 🙂

dnf install bzip2
yum install bzip2

Now it should decompress 🙂
