    Service Pack, installation command

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

    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.

    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:


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