pkgadd - in HP-UX 11.0
Posted on 2003-10-27
I have a question about pkgadd. I have a few packages that were created on Soalris 8 platform and I have to spool them on a HP-UX 11.0 platform (dont need to install them - spoolong with be OK). I ftped the files and uncompressed them and put them in a directory called src. Then I created a new directory called output where I want the spooled info to go.
Then from the src directory when I run
$> pkgadd -d /home/mylogin/src/pkg1 -s /home/mylogin/output
I get the following error
Out of phase--get help
Perhaps the "-c" option shouldn't be used
pkgadd: ERROR: attempt to process datastream failed
- process <cpio -icdum > failed, exit code 2
I am not sure where I am going wrong.
Any ideas are highly appreciated
