You cannot use the PASE version of tar to extract the bootstrap as it
requires GNU tar to contain paths that exceed the maximum allowed by PASE
tar. The error you encountered indicated that you didn't have authority to
run it. I don't think the script marks it executable after it's extracted
from the script, so you would need *ALLOBJ to run it. Arguably that's a
bug since binaries should be marked executable, but you need *ALLOBJ
Do you have *ALLOBJ authority?

We are on IBM i 7.2 TR9 and following the link above, transferred the and bootstrap.tar.Z files to /tmp directory in binary.

QSH CMD('touch -C 819 /tmp/bootstrap.log; /QOpenSys/usr/bin/ksh
/tmp/ > /tmp/bootstrap.log 2>&1')

Giving a try to the command above, i have seen the following error
message in the /tmp/bootstrap.log file
/tmp/ /tmp/gtar: cannot execute
Bootstrap failed

I have then come across the link,
and run the following commands then failed again

  tar: directory checksum error (4 != 4559)

Do you guys have come across such a kind of error with the
libsqlite3-0-3.19.3-2-ppc64 or have any idea on how to get rid of it?
