Re: *.zip file

you can use gunzip for this puepose. 'gunzip -d'.

Also there is a third party patch for the same. (I couldnt recollect the same)

Or just unzip the same in your PC using winzip and transfer to the system.

gunzip may work in some cases but best to get the real thing.

Re: *.zip file

You can also use Java 1.4 to unzip if you have it.

/opt/java1.4/bin/jar -xvf

I sure hope not. "/usr/local/bin/", perhaps.

Re: *.zip file

If there is only one compressed file in .zip, any of the above commands works. AFAIK, Oracle installation is a directory tree. NPUX unzip can't work with such a structure. It's possible uncompess the installation either on Windows or LINUX machine. At least a couple of years ago I had to work by this way.

Re: *.zip file

sometimes if "gunzip *zip" doestn't work, you can use "unzip *zip"directly
