Which Linux zip program can be used to unzip Altera zip files?

Which Linux zip program can be used to unzip Altera zip files like: 

 

 

ftp://ftp.altera.com/outgoing/devkit/12.1/arriavgt_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip 

 

 

 

 

$ file arriaVGT_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip arriaVGT_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract $ unzip -v |head -1 UnZip 6.00 of 20 April 2009, by Info-ZIP. Maintained by C. Spieler. Send $ unzip arriaVGT_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip Archive: arriaVGT_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive.  

 

So which Linux program can be used to unzip it?  

 

 

gzip and bzip2 does not seem to work either. I was hoping that Altera would go for something like a gzip'ed tar file for other than Windows self extracting exe files.

That version of unzip on Linux works fine on that file from that URL. Sounds like your local copy of the file is corrupted. Here is the MD5 of mine. 

 

$ md5sum ~/Downloads/arriaVGT_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip b5d11349bc07fa99409b68d4b8aca27a arriaVGT_5agtfd7kf40_fpga_v12.1.0.1.zip $

Thanks. That must be the case if you just downloaded it. My md5sum is:

I will try to download it again.

BTW: It would also be great if Altera provided md5sum, or sha512sums or similar with all their downloads...

My new download had a md5sum which was identical to yours and unzip worked fine.
