I'm doing some installation of a UPS on a SunOS 5.6. I couldn't continue as I need the SUNWlibCx package. I don't have Sun CD with me. Is there any place I can download the SUNWlibCx package? I need it urgently.

I would suspect not. A quick check of Sunsolve doesn't show it handy. Solaris 5.6 is not a supported version, so I doubt you can get the CDs from Sun any more. Oldest supported rev in 5.8.

You're not going to get it from the Recommended Patches kit because that'll just be a patch, perhaps even just some diffs, and not the actual package. You need the Solaris CDs

I happen to have a set of Solaris 5.6 CDs - since you have an RTU with the Sun hardware (I assume, since you didn't bother to say, we're talking about Solaris/Sparc and not Solaris x86), there's no licensing issue, so I can burn you a set (if I'd found this Question 48 hours ago, I coulda sent you the duplicate set I hauled to the dump yesterday in a pile of other duplicate software CDs I ditched). You'd need to pay shipping, naturally (unless you're in central North Carolina, USA, and can pick it up).

If you're interested and no one else has any better ideas, direct me on where to find your E-Mail address, and we can set this up.

I just need the package. Is it possible to send it over via email? How large is the package?

If you have a support contract with Sun on other systems, it never hurts to call and ask if they will pony up the package.  You have nothing to lose by asking except time.

PsiCop made a good point, it is time to upgrade your OS, Solaris 6 is too old, most of the
new Software will only support Solaris 8/9, unless you have a good reason to keep the
old OS (eg, your application software only can run on Solaris 6!).

You can download Solaris 9 from: (Free)

Good luck!

I'll see if I can identify the package files on the CDs. Dunno how large it might be.

Honestly, I don't see why a refund. I think helpful information was provided.
