Oracle 10g says "end of file" cyclic redundancy error

Hi I downloaded the 583MB ship.db.cpio.gz oracle 10g file from oracle. I placed it on a cdrom and tried to ungzip the file it said "unexpected end of file" I assumed I had a corrupt file and went off to download another 583MB file from the official oracle site. it crashed during the download I was using a download manager and managed to complete the download and placed it on a cdrom on trying to ungzip it in linux 9 it said the same error "unexpected end of file".

I assumed that because of the crash the file somehow got corrupted. So now on the third try of trying to download it it said cyclic redunancy check error.

I am kinda stuck as to how to proceeed now.

You know, this seems to be a little familiar to a problem I had with downloading a patch from Oracle. The problem was on AIX but I got some similar-sounding errors.

Turns out that the documentation that "shipped" with the patch was wrong in terms of the cpio flags. It said use "cpio -idmv". However, the latest documentation on TechNet said use "cpio -idcv".

I've no idea if this will solve your problem, but it is something to try.

I may be stating the obvious but cyclic redundency error (crc error) is when an error has been found in the checksum

Computer finds out, refuses to execute.

Zip files use it and a lot of archives do........... seems like all the places you've downloaded from -- the end result of a file seems to keep getting corrupted.

Low HD space maybe?
