The Internet is large, and it contains many
things.

You downloaded _what_, exactly, from _where_,
exactly, and did _what_, exactly, with it?

Personally, I'd just fetch a source kit, and
build it myself.

http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/


Doesn't HP-UX B.11.11 include gzip?

Re: How to install gzip in HP UX B.11.11

I would get gzip from:

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Gnu/gzip-1.3.12/

If you download the 11.11 "compressed binary depot" (which is the 2nd link from the bottom) then you can use "uncompress" to uncompress what you download and then use swinstall to install.

>>Doesn't HP-UX B.11.11 include gzip?

HP-UX has come with a version of gzip since at least version 10.20. However, if I recall correctly it was relatively old (Version 1.2.4 I think) and did not support creating files larger than 2GB.

Re: How to install gzip in HP UX B.11.11

Hi again,

#whereis visudo
/usr/sbin/visudo

run the command /usr/sbin/visudo
It will open /etc/sudoers you can edit as below mention

User servername = /usr/bin/kill

for example
# jack may run this commands in CSNETS
jack CSNETS = /usr/sbin/reboot, /usr/sbin/shutdown, /usr/bin/passwd

save the file

login as jack
to run kill command
sudo /usr/bin/kill -9 pid

Re: How to install gzip in HP UX B.11.11

Hi,

Thanks a ton for your help. Now sudo access is working fine. But i need some clarification on this.

1. kill -9 its working fine, but i required kill -15 to work.(kill -15 is not working now)

2. You may want to run the configure with this option: --disable-root-sudo That way you don't get in a situtation where someone can do a sudo sudo /bin/sh and become root... ( I AM NOT ABLE TO DISABLE THE ABOVE MENTIONED ITS SHOWING AS:
# /usr/local/bin/sudo --disable-root-sudo
/usr/local/bin/sudo: illegal option -- - )

3. I dont want to use # who -q command for sudo users, its possible or not.

4. How to uninstall sudo.

THANKS IN ADVANCE...

The title of this thread is "How to install
gzip in HP UX B.11.11". Now, you seem to
want advice on a completely different topic.
A casual reader will never guess this.

> (kill -15 is not working now)

What, exactly, does "not working" mean?

> 4. How to uninstall sudo.

Who knows how you installed it? (Or what,
exactly, you installed?) "Now i have
installed sudo package" is not a complete
description of what you installed or how you
installed it.

Hi Omprakash

You can uninstall sudo from sam or
#swremove -i packagename.
