  • 1.  Where can I find a newer version of unzip?

    Posted 9 days ago

    Hi.  I have an old version of unzip that I downloaded years ago.  I'm working with a file now and when trying to unzip it I get the error messages:

    Archive:  Bill.zip                                                   
       skipping: DT052024.txt            need PK compat. v4.5 (can do v2.1) 
       skipping: DM052024.txt            need PK compat. v4.5 (can do v2.1)

    I was hoping to download a newer version of unzip, but I'm having trouble understanding the miniconda process.  I do not have access to the internet from my z/OS lpars, so, is it possible to get a repo (or the unzip package) downloaded locally?

    thanks, Dan

    Hi Dan Smith,

    You can download the latest available version from https://anaconda.org/zoss-appdev

    upload it to your lpar and unpack it to the appropriate location:

    bzip2 -d unzip-6.0-18.tar.bz2 (if you don't have bzip2 installed on your lpar then unpack it on your workstation)
    pax -rf unzip-6.0-18.tar

    Thanks,
    Alexander
