Hi friends:

Please help. I ran into this wierd problem while trying to install 9i on my PIII box. The O/S is Red Hat 7.3 with 1G RAM. I downloaded the 3 zipped files from OTN, but when I went to uncompress the first one (disk1), I received this error:
#cpio -idmv < lnx_920_disk1.cpio.gz
cpio: warning: skipped 116160 bytes of junk.
cpio: warning: the archive header has reverse byte-order.

I tried it on the other two files (disk2 &3) and it works fine. I installed 9i on this very same box using the same method a month ago and did not encounter this problem at all.

Has anyone encounter this problem before, and if so, how did you get around it/solve it?

T.I.A for all the help.

John
