OS=Solaris8 x86 ( Fresh core system install )

Error as below:

pkgadd: ERROR: attempt to process datastream failed - open of (SUNWlibc) failed, errno=2
pkgadd: ERROR: could not process datastream from <SUNWlibc>

what wrong actually? not enough library?

    Accepted Solution

    Probably because SUNWlibc has been truncated.  Try loading it again from CD or where ever you got it from.
