I'm installing something that demands patch 105181-06.
What I have is 105181-05 and 105181-11.
1. What does it mean that the patches name start with the same number?
2. Do I still need to install patch 105181-06?

1. any patch has different versions. Version 11 is newer than 06 and 05. (IN your system, version 5 was superseded by 11)
2. If you have version 11 already installed, you don't need anything else.
