SUMMARY:Need help to gunzip the gcc file

Date: Tue Apr 20 1999 - 09:49:13 CDT

This list is awesome.

Upon receiving response, I checked the download file with file command and
it tells me it is text file. I looked at it and it is already in pkgadd
format. Apparently, netscape already uncompressed it during the download.

I renamed the file back to gcc-2_8_1-sol26-sparc-local and run pkgadd -d .
to install the package.

Many thanks to all the replies. There are just too many names to mention

Thank you again and happy computing to you all.


Original Question:

Hello to All:

I have run into very strange problem with gunzip
Here is the detail:

We are running Solaris 2.6 on Ultra-Enterprise II.

# pkginfo GNUzip
utility GNUzip GNU zip 1.2.4 SPARC Solaris 2.6

I just went to to download the
gcc-2_8_1-sol26-sparc-local.gz files.

I have tried either IE or Netscape 4.5 to download the file. Downloads
were successful.

# ls -al gcc*
-rw-r--r-- 1 zhhuan ist 26762240 Apr 16 13:22

I then use following command to unzip it.

gunzip gcc-2_8_1-sol26-sparc-local.gz

Got this error message:

gunzip: gcc-2_8_1-sol26-sparc-local.gz: not in gzip format

Any suggestion to try? Thanks in advance

I have used the gunzip before to unzip the top and was able to install top
without problem
