Hi,
This is what I see when I did a showrev -p command in Solaris 2.5:
Patch: 105160-01 Obsoletes: Requires: Incompatibles: Packages: SUNWdtbas

What is those TERM (Obsoletes,Requires,Incompatibles )mean? And how the machine knows it is Obsoletes?

Thanks,
Emay

Hmm Here you go

Patch -> The version of Patch currently on the system
Obsoletes -> Patches replaced by this patch
Requires-> patches needed , and that must be installed prior to             this one
Incompatibles-> patches that won't work with this one.

Obsoletes are determened by Sun as they develop new patches.

So, if the message is this:
Patch: 105790-06  Obsoletes: 103796-19

Which one is obsolete? 103796-19 or 105790-06 ?

Thanks
