gunzip: p4163445.zip: unknown suffix -- ignored

I downloaded a patchbundle from Oracle metalink
for HPUX 11.00 (64bit),
and the file has an extension .zip

I first thought I had to open it with
winzip on windows and there would be a .tar
or something in it. No , winzip did not
recognize it.

Then I tried it on unix with gunzip,
also no joy.

Hmmm, what could it be ..

[root@orasrv2:]/CDROM<>>> ll *zip
-r-xr-xr-x 1 -1 -1 340335424 Jan 16 17:13 p4163445.zip
[root@orasrv2:]/CDROM<>>> gunzip p4163445.zip
gunzip: p4163445.zip: unknown suffix -- ignored
[root@orasrv2:]/CDROM<>>>

Frank,

You could try renaming it to a ".gz" suffix. If that doesn't work, try the attached unzip.

Hi,

Pete is right and you should get unzip tool in order to uncompress that file. That is the reason about - unknown suffix - in gunzip.


Good luck.

Best regards,
Fabio

Frank he means.
mv p4163445.zip to p4163445.gz
then try to gunzip
make a copy first.
or do cp p4163445.zip p4163445.gz

I found this and it worked:

"If you don't have access to an unzipping utility, you can use the jar command, included in the "bin" directory of the Java 2 SDK or JDK, as long as it is reachable from your executable path. "

% jar xvf jndi1_2-bin.zip

Very confusing isn't it,
a jar that does zip !!
