Does anyone know how to extract a recent Fedora rpm? The one in particular I want to open is for Hugin 0.8.0... but I don't think I ever figured out how to open all the ones I mentioned ages ago at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=246826

Downloaded ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/bugbear.blackfish.org.uk/~bruno/apt/redhat/el4/i386/RPMS.panorama/hugin-0.8.0-0.1.20090104svn.el4.i386.rpm and ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/bugbear.blackfish.org.uk/~bruno/apt/fedora/linux/11/i386/RPMS.panorama/hugin-0.8.0-1.fc11.i586.rpm dated 2009-07-18.

Extracted them both with ttuuxxx's xarchiver-0.5.2-i386-v4.pet.

Hope that helps, J

No, doesn't work on this package. http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/devel/i386/hugin-0.8.0-2.fc12.i686.html
Code:
bzip2: /tmp/xa-iNSZYe/file.gz_bz is not a bzip2 file.


I wonder if the problem is with fc12 packages. Or maybe with the Koji packages, which I think are more official...

I'll try that one anyway, since you found it. Thanks.

The other thing I notice is that the koji packages are considerably smaller, so I think they might be using a different sort of compression.

Too many new dependencies... 0.7.0 is pretty good, so I think I'll wait till either we have a proper package repository or there is a significant improvement in hugin before upgrading the package. Unless I get locked in a room with a computer and nothing else to do...

I just downloaded a fedora 12 rpm, a grub package, and busybox 'rpm2cpio' was unable to open it.

In the past I have done something like this successfully:

rpm2cpio packagename.rpm | cpio -i -d

hugin 0.8.0.tar.gz

http://sourceforge.net/projects/hugin/files/hugin/

No, I decided it isn't worth the effort to build hugin working from source. And due to all the new dependencies I don't think I'll update at all at the moment, although that is quite doable. You can of course try 0.7.0 which I packaged up with all the dependencies too...

This problem would not by any chance be a unicode issue.....just that sometimes content is shown without names then give an extracting error.

I have uploaded p7zip_9.04_full.pet

This is the latest version of p7zip command line file archiver and extractor.
Quote:
Supported formats:
Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
Unpacking only: ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, DEB, DMG, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MSI, NSIS, RAR, RPM, UDF, WIM, XAR and Z.


I have included a Utility menu entry to access the manual in your htmlviewer.

Also I have placed p7zip_extract on the right click OpenWith menu. This will extract the contents of sample_archive.xxx to the folder /sample_archive.xxx_extracted in the same folder as the archive file.

I used it to extract a fedora fc12 rpm. First it extracted a .cpio file and then I extracted that to get the program files.

Enjoy, J

I didn't copy the files extracted to save space but all files were extracted successfully.

Right clicking and using OpenWith-p7zip_extract is easier.

Thanks for the info jrb.....
From that I realised I was using 7za and not 7z
I had been using 7za for 7z archives so perhaps 7za is only for 7z and the 7z binary (and lib?) covers other formats...slightly confusing but clear now.
So an xarchive script for newer rpms would use 7z in 2 stages...or alter disrpm to use 7z..

Regards
