how to unzip a split winzip 9.1 file


is there a native linux tool that i can use ?, i tried running winzip 9.1 under wine but it would not install without a HTML help system from windows installed. and all other zip style windows utils that can handle split zips also refuse to install under wine.

or do i have to do somthing special with the basic linux tools to perform the operation ?.

No guarantees that this will work, but you could give the following a try:
Code:
cat ZIPFILE1 ZIPFILE2 ZIPFILE3 ZIPFILE4 | unzip -

you could maybe try RAR to unzip it, although you may want to DL the windows version and use that the GUI in it is good and its a pain to type out all the commands for the linux version.

okay, i figured out why AAops would not install earlier, for some reason it's installer aims for your tmp directory and if your tmp dir is only 350 megs or so like mine it won't install at all. Which is the problem i was having. now to fix it i did the following as ROOT:

sh armyops-230-linux.run --target NewDirectory <insert your new destination here>
then it should if there is enough free space in the destination you define present you with the install setup.

I know most people have this solved probably, but just in case i thought i would post this solution as my problem is not as common as most people can install without any problems.
