UnZipSFX 5.52 of 28 February 2005, by Info-ZIP (http://www.info-zip.org).
  inflating: jre-7-ea-linux-i586.rpm
Failed to extract the files.  Please refer to the Troubleshooting section of
the Installation Instructions on the download page for more information.

Though it is prompted that extraction failed, and exit code is 1, jre.rpm is successfully extracted to the working directory. And this jre.rpm is workable (at least it installs fine).

Issue is a regression from JDK 6. It is reproducible with all -rpm.bin bundles (both jdk and jre, both i586 and amd64)

SUGGESTED FIX We need to upgrade to the latest version of unzip that works. We cannot upgrade and perform the testing this week. We would like to do this in 7-pool

WORK AROUND Users can unzip the file and ignore the messaage unzip ../jre-7-ea-linux-i586-rpm.bin Archive: ../jre-7-ea-linux-i586-rpm.bin warning [../jre-7-ea-linux-i586-rpm.bin]: 75790 extra bytes at beginning or within zipfile (attempting to process anyway) inflating: jre-7-ea-linux-i586.rpm alien -i jre-7-ea-linux-i586.rpm Run the following commands ../bin/unpack200 deploy.pack deploy.jar ../bin/unpack200 charsets.pack charsets.jar ../bin/unpack200 javaws.pack javaws.jar ../bin/unpack200 jsse.pack jsse.jar ../bin/unpack200 plugin.pack plugin.jar ../bin/unpack200 rt.pack rt.jar

EVALUATION I tried this on Ubuntu and it failed. The version of Unzipsfx that we are using is no longer supported. I need to create a new bundle with the lastest version of Unzipsfx and test it. There are other inssues on Unbuntu in that Ubuntu doesn't support the native installation of rmps wihtout the use of alien which converts them first to debian format.
