Installing SUNWxxx Software

By ajstancato ·
I want to install additional Solaris Software into my Solaris 8 OS box. I want to install ASET. Everything in Solaris begins with SUNWxxx.

I know how to add software once I locate it. Is there a rule of thumb to know which SUNWxxx file is the oneassociated with the files or package you wish to install?

They do like to bury that information. There is an application to package reference list in one of the books that comes with the distribution, probably the advanced installation guide (I'm not near my set at the moment or I'd find out which one forsure).

Hi,
position yourself in the directory where all SUNWxxx files are and type this command:
pkgadd -d .

It will show you all packages, type the number of the ones that you want to install..

Sometimes, there is a install file. Also look fora README file, normally there is one with the installation instructions.

Ciao

You may be able to find out using the pkginfo command. Change to the directory containing the SUNW* files (on cd1 or cd2), then use:

# pkginfo -l -d .

(l = long, d = directory to search)

Another way to find a specific file is to use the find command. Again, change to the directory where your SUNW* packages are, then use:

# find . -name <zzz> -print

Substitute your command name for the <zzz>
