What else?

# file 10gr2_db_sol.cpio.gz

How did you transfer the file from your PC to the server?

BTW, where is the relation to hp-ux here?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

You should compare the checksum of your file with the value provided on the web page. Maybe something went wrong while downloading - any download managers in use?

Hope this helps!

Hi Torsten
Thanks for your update.
In the above command I have forgotten to give redirect <
cpio -idmv < 10gr2_db_sol.cpio
Hence the issue is resolved

"man cpio":

cpio -i (copy in, import) Extract files from standard input,
which is assumed to be the result of a previous cpio -o.

Perhaps something more like:

cpio -idmv < 10gr2_db_sol.cpio

?

(Or else start typing ...)

I don't use cpio much, but whenever someone
complains about some harmless-looking command
hanging, I worry about stdin. The TestDrive
stuff has all vanished again today, so it
took me a few minutes to find a good "man"
page.

By the way, I _really_ dislike Web browsers
who "help" me by expanding some .bz2 or .gz
or .zip file, when all I really wanted was
the small thing I thought that I was
downloading. Sigh.
