oracle & linux installation
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.
Either the download Of zip1 was incomplete or improper.
Had it been on WIN...it wud have shown whether the file was currupt...but i have no idea abt how to go on linux.

1)gunzip lnx_920_disk1.cpio.gz --make sure gunzip utility is installed or ask your ssyadmin to do so
I issued the following gunzip command and then pipe it to cpio -idmv and got a different error message:
$ gunzip lnx_920_disk1.cpio -idmv | cpio -idmv
cpio: premature end of archive.
By the way, I downloaded it directly onto this box. Earlier in the day, I downloaded onto my Mandrake 8.1 box and burnt it onto a CD and got the same identical error message when trying to uncompress it. Any idea?
Again, T.I.A for all the help/suggestion.
The correct command issued was:
# gunzip lnx_920_disk1.cpio.gz | cpio -idmv
I tried it again, step by step, as suggested by Hrishy, and it works this time. It is rather odd that I was still able to uncompress disk2 & 3 using my "shortcut" way, but not disk1.
Anyway, thanks a million for all the help.
