gunzip fails with error on valid compressed files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem:
gunzip fails on decompressing lnx_920_disk2.cpio.gz from
with following error:
gunzip: lnx_920_disk2.cpio.gz: invalid compressed data--format
This archive unpacks fine on RHEL 3AS using gzip-1.3.3-9
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download indicated file from OTN
Error message reported above
successful unpack of file
How big is the file compressed and uncompressed? Do you have any other file
which fails on 2.1 and gunzips fine on RHEL3 as the lnx_920_disk2.cpio.gz is no
longer on the Oracle web page.
I'm closing this bug.
If anybody can reproduce this problem feel free to reopen this bug.
