Can't add patch properly
Posted on 2004-04-22
I am trying to add a patch to Solaris 8 and I am having problems.....like usual.
I downloaded the patch and unzipped it, extracted it to a file and transfererred it to the sun box via ftp. I moved it from the tmp directory to the /var/spool/pkg directory and I proceeded with the following which gave me the error shown:
# patchadd -M /var/spool/pkg 108435-15
One or more patch packages included in
108435-15 are not installed on this system.
Patchadd is terminating.
I checked the file that tells me what I am missing and it says the following:
THIS FILE CONTAINS THE LIST OF MISSING PATCHES OR KERNEL UPDATE .
The following patches are required on Solaris 5.8.
#The following patch is required if you are running Solaris 5.8 in 32-bit mode.
#The following patch is required if you are running Solaris 5.8 in 64-bit mode.
I can't find 108435-04 by itself but it seems to be a part of 108435-15 so I figure that it is the correct one and I am running 64bit (I think?)
If anyone sees what I am doing wrong please help!
