    cannot extract .exe by using cabextract


    halo.... i did downloaded a cabextract-1.1.tar.gz from :http://www.kyz.uklinux.net/cabextract.php

    I am trying to install ndiswrapper (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...p/Installation)
    and it is required a window driver to support it.

    I did found a window driver from this link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...cid=MIGR-59438

    When i tried to extract the 1rwc89ww.exe, there is an error message shown in terminal :
    [root@hb2b-130 1rwc89ww]# cabextract 1rwc89ww.exe
    1rwc89ww.exe: no valid cabinets found

    All done, errors in processing 1 file(s)


    Did anyone know why ???

    You should be able to use wine to extract it. It is more than likely not a driver directly, but a self-extracting archive. Once you install/configure wine just run
    Code:
    cd /location/of/driver.exe
    wine driver.exe
    sunstituting path/filename accordingly.
