Python install on z/OS (unpack step)

Hi,

I try installing Python 2.7.13 and Python 3.6.1 for z/OS, previous to this I downloaded and installed gzip, perl, and bash, all without any issues.

When I enter the following command in the unpack step, I can not get any results.

/python/gzip/rsusr/rocket/bin/gzip -d -c /python/python-2017-04-12-py27.tar.gz | tar xoUXf -

Thanks.
Omer

Hi omerdeliballi,

As option you can try to use these commands separately:
gzip -d python-2017-04-12-py27.tar.gz
tar -xoUXf python-2017-04-12-py27.tar

BTW, we recommend to use ssh terminal for USS e.g. PuTTY, not omvs.

Thanks,
Alexander

Hi ,

Thanks for your answer, Alexander. It happened when you run it separately.

Thanks.

Hello Omer,

Just to clarify, were you able to install Python, or did the command sequence fail just the same?

Thanks,
Vladimir

Hi Vladimir,

I was able to install Python.
I ran these commands separately.;

gzip -d python-2017-04-12-py27.tar.gz
tar -xoUXf python-2017-04-12-py27.tar

Thanks,
Omer
