- Subject: CPIO with solaris 9 flash archives
I'm trying to get cygwin cpio to view/extract a flash archive made on solaris 9.
According to the docs, a flash archive is just a cpio archive.
Reading the during the solaris install works fine, but I am having trouble getting cygwin cpio to view it:
E:\>cpio -ivF v240-disbox-v1-08-archive /etc/release
cpio: warning: skipped 90486 bytes of junk
cpio: warning: archive header has reverse byte-order
cpio: warning: skipped 188023 bytes of junk
cpio: warning: skipped 1360 bytes of junk
cpio: warning: skipped 146962 bytes of junk
cpio: premature end of file
both the file and the drive I am reading it with work fine.
I can't say I've used cpio much, but the man pages say that it should recognise the format automatically.
any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
