I have downloaded Bash 4.2.53 from Rocket Software site for installation in a z/OS V2R2 environment.
The download was successful and the file downloaded was “bash-4.2_b0005.160513.tar.gz”.
However, when I upload (in binary mode) to z/OS’s USS and try to “tar” it (tar zxvf bash-4.2_b0005.160513.tar.gz) I receive an error message indicating that the file is not in compressed format. I haven’t found any clue in this forum…
Can you please help me with this issue?
An additional detail: I discovered a link to the theoretically newer file “bash-4.3_b0008.160714.tar.gz” but the same error occurs.
Thank you very much and best regards.
