FILE EXTRACTING PROBLEM

Postby mohdali2 » Sun Mar 28, 2004 1:53 pm

I download Oracle Database 9 from the Oracle site the
file is in follwing format:

<filename>.cpio.gz

According to the site the file extraction have following
two step:

1- First run gunzip.
2- Extract the file which have now .cpio extension with
cpio -idmv <filename>.cpio

The file is extracted successfully using gunzip but when
i tried it with cpio command the CPU doesn't respond the
command. So I have to abort the operation with CTL+C.
