Thank you Oracle (Roger and Justin Kestelyn) for getting back to me on my complaint regarding an issue I describe as “not being able to unpack the self extracting binary JDKs from the Oracle download link” below:
Here is the error after downloading this self extracting binary file named “jdk-6u18-solaris-sparc.sh.”
For inquiries please contact: Sun Microsystems, Inc., 4150 Network Circle, Santa Clara, California 95054, U.S.A. Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no] yes Unpacking... Checksumming... The download file appears to be corrupted. Please refer to the Troubleshooting section of the Installation Instructions on the download page for more information. Please do not attempt to install this archive file.
UPDATE: A UNIX Engineer at my company has solved the problem for me, though I still cannot unpack using his instrux yet in case I need to do this again in the future. Once I get the exact instrux he applied, I will add them here.
More updates to follow …
Thanks, – Ben
