Software Installation (SD-UX)

I need to install a patch and I found it on the web site. I have to put in the /TMP directory and unshar it.
The patch exists in four differnet formats: zip, gzip, tar and ftb or html. I chose the tar format and it downloaded as a zip file on my PC. What do i do? Unzip it on the pc and move it to the HP9000 seerver and unshar it?

Hi,

If you have gunzip on your server you should be able to take it there and unzip it. If not unzip it and then transfer and "sh filename.

Thanks

Windows likes to associate files with extentions. Usually I save as all files to help make sure it save the original extention. I would not open it in windows if it is a tar file. Try ftping the file you have directly the the UNIX system. Then rename it to yourfilename.tar with mv. Then untar it. Tar -tvf filename to see file contents, and tar -xvf to untar the file.

If it is a depot you can register it with the swreg command.
