Hm, not even when all three files (.zip, .z01, .z02) are present? I'd give it a try, but I don't feel like pulling 4GB of data over the contractor DSL crap line :)

EDIT: well, I did pull it in, but over SSH to the home server... makes a difference in time. It is indeed a multi-file split zip. What to do (on Linux or OSX):

Code: Select all

$ wget ftp://ftp.hp.com/ftp1/pub/openvms/openvmsft/5014-1449.zip
$ wget ftp://ftp.hp.com/ftp1/pub/openvms/openvmsft/5014-1449_1.z01
$ wget ftp://ftp.hp.com/ftp1/pub/openvms/openvmsft/5014-1449_2.z02
$ mv 5014-1449_1.z01 5014-1449.z01
$ mv 5014-1449_2.z02 5014-1449.z02
$ zip -s 0 5014-1449.zip --out 5014-1449-unsplit.zip
$ unzip 5014-1449-unsplit.zip

... and you get the .iso. Looks and mounts okay too:

Code: Select all

$ sudo mount -o loop 5014-1449.iso /mnt/iso
$ head -5 /mnt/iso/QPK1131.readme
*******************************************************************
* HP-UX 11i Version 3 (B.11.31)
* Quality Pack Bundle README File
* September 2009
*******************************************************************


Repeat for the other. Silly there isn't a way of using a pipe, but 3GB of extra temp disk space never killed anyone. :)

I have, of course, deleted the files right after testing them because I don't own the proper support contracts to run this particular OE. ;)

Oh, I got them to unpack correctly, with matching CRC32's; by pretty much your method - concat the files together in order z01+z02+zip, feed to Universal Extractor.

what a mess, could they have done it any more twisted? :P
anyway thanks of course for the links and the "how to extract" guide :D


EDIT: no idea what version of zip you used but neither debian nor osx could handle it.
EDIT2: ended up concatting them manually and throwing that at Universal Extractor. no other program i had could handle it. a very weird way of packing something :P

Eh, zip 3.0-3... debian oldstable :?

It's probably related to lack of support for large files on one of the fileservers at HP; it's obviously split in Windows zip - that can extract from a multi file zip directly. Linux unzip can't as of yet (since normally, no one uses it anyway...).

Glad it worked, and glad you stuck with it long enough for them to get back on the air. Enjoy!
