" gunzip: File too large / gzip: Value too large for defined data type" - İsmail Yenigül - (2005-06-03 18:34:38)   [40928]

The gzip/gunzip provided in Solaris 8 cannot compress/uncompress file that size is more than 4GB.
You may receive following errors:

gzip: "Value too large for defined data type"
gunzip: "File too large"

Workaround for "gunzip: File too large" use gzcat

# gzcat file.tar.gz > file.tar

To solve these problems completely, use gzip 1.3.x or higher version from http://www.sunfreeware.com or http://www.gnu.org/software/gzip/gzip.html
