Re: swinstall

Hi,

please post output of

# file

I'd suppose the file is not good to be installed.

Re: swinstall

Why don't you cut and paste the exact message you're getting. I think we're losing something of the context.

Re: swinstall

Hi,

as asked please post the swinstall command you type.

Anyway, as the urgency, I suppose you don't have a winodws system where unzip/zip your urgent files.

Best regards,
Fabio

Re: swinstall

... please do the needful urgent...

Yes, please do so and post the information you have been asked for.

Let's assume your file is in /tmp do

# swlist -s /tmp/zip-3.0-ia64-11.31.depot

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: swinstall

You might need to put a full path before the depot. Something like:

swinstall -s /tmp/****.depot

Or better, post more detailed info about the problem.

Re: swinstall

All the people are asking you for more information, but you only post it's urgent, it's urgent ... This isn't helpful.

Hope this helps!
