has anybody downloaded Oracle 817 (enterprise edition) for solaris from otn.oracle.com and tried to unzip the (archived) file "817solaris.cpio.gz" ?
I tried to extract the same using the command
but doesn't succeed !!! :(
>gunzip: 817solaris.cpioi.gz : not in gzip format
is what I get.
Did you try
gunzip -d filename
no op !! that did not work either
Did you try the downloaded file size with that of the original file size.
You may want to try this
mv 817solaris.cpioi.gz 817solaris.cpio
cat 817solaris.cpio | cpio -icd
I presume if this doesn't work, then the problem would be on the download. Try downloading the file againg and proceed with the oracle's instructions to unzip them.
