Dear Expert:

I am running Solaris 5.7 and need to install 105181-26 patch. I boot the machine in 'init 1' mode; after uncompress, tar the file and running 'Patchadd -u 105181-26, I have the following error message:
 ***********************************************    
     Checking installed patches...
     One or more patch packages included in
     105181-26 are not installed on this system

     Patchadd is terminating
 **********************************************
I look into the 105181-26 read me file and it call for installing 106429-02 patch first. I am using the same process to install 106429-02 patch and have the similar error message as 105181-26 patch.

Please help!

When I look up the information on patch 105181-26, in Sun's patch database, I see it's intened for Solaris 5.6(aka: 2.6).  If that number is right, you're trying to apply a patch to 5.7, that's not designated for 5.7.

Is the patch ID correct?

Are you infact running 5.7?

Are you trying to patch something specific?

This is a Kernel update patch for solaris 2.6.

If you are using solaris 2.7 this will not work and you will get the errors like this, like add other patches etc.etc.

this patch is not intended for solaris 2.7 operating environment.

If you have any doubts post your comments here.

I am running Solaris 2.7;  infact I am trying to install Oracle release 8.1.5.  According to Oracle's Operating System Software Requirements that I access from http://technet.oracle.com/doc/solaris/server.815/a67457/req.htm.  Oracle quoted as follows:
            OS Software                      Requirements
                 Operating System            Solaris 2.6 or 2.7
                  Operating System           Use the latest kernel patch from Sun Microsystems
                  Patch                                 ----------

                                                              At least kernel jumbo patch revision #105181-06 is
                                                              required for successful installation of Release 8.1.5

I have also tried install Oracle without the patch, but with a lot of 'Retry' errors, I ignored the 'Retry' errors and finished the installation; but Oracle did not work.

The short of the matter is that patch #105181-06 is for Solaris 2.6 exclusively.  If you have access to SunSolve, I would recommend installing the "Maintenance Updates," and the latest "Recommended Solaris Patch Clusters."

I can't say that will fix your problem, but it should bring you up to date on all your patches.

As far as Oracle goes, I would go back and look through the database (I don't have access to their database, so I can't help you there, let alone follow your link), or call their support team.

105181 is Kernel patch for Solaris 2.6.

106541 is Kernel patch for Solaris 7.

Don't worry about patch number. Just install lastest recommended patch (ftp://sunsolve.sun.com/pub/patches/7_Recommended.tar.Z)

All oracle require patch mostly include in recommended patch.

Good Luck.
