Service Pack, installation command

  • Article Type: General
  • Product: Aleph
  • Product Version: 16.02

Description:
Following the latest instructions (Nov. 20, 2005), "The ALEPH Servce Pack", chapter 6 "How Do I Install the ALEPH Service Pack" (pages 7 and 8) we get an error on step 5 page 8 as follows:

cat sp_16_02.tar.gz_* | gzip -d | tar xvf -
cat: No match.

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: blocksize = 0

Please let us know what we need to do in order to complete step 5.

Resolution:
Please do the following command:
5. From the Unix prompt:

cat xxxxx.tar.gz | gzip -d | tar xvf -

(where xxxxx.tar.gz is the name of the file you ftp-ed to your server).

If the file name contains brackets, they need to be preceded by a backslash. Example:

cat ALEPH-16\[1].02-ServicePack-1-1478.tar.gz | gzip -d | tar xvf -

You get three files:

sp.install*
sp.tar
gnu_tar*

Also, make sure you ftp this xxx.gz file in binary.
