Hi,

I am a newbie on HP-UX,  my dba gave me a list of package that I need to install so he can be able to install oracle database 10G.

Unfortunately, I have never installed packages on hp-ux, I don't even know the command or procedures to install packages.

You may get a lot of information, and often most of the packages from this site:

The Software Installation manual is currently at
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01920463/c01920463.pdf

Table 2.2 on page 65 summarises the process using the GUI:
I. Start-Up - Start the swinstall GUI.
II. Select Source - Provide the location of the software depot from which the software will be installed.
III. Select Software - Choose the software to install.
IV. Analysis (Preview) - Analyze (preview) the installation to determine if the selected software can be installed successfully.
V. Installation - Perform the actual software installation.

The main complication is that you may have multiple "sources" (software depots) available, e.g. downloads, CDs, repositories on other servers, and managing those sources is a job in itself (Also covered in the manual)

No.  Patches are part of a Support Contract.

I have one issue.

I don't have a graphical interface on the  server so I am looking for an easy way to install the HP-UX packages something like the rpm -ivh on redhat.

swinstall can be used from the command line - See page 73 of the Software Installation manual link I posted.

In its simplest form
swinstall -s <source_depot> <package1 package2 ...>
You can use the "-f yoursoftwarelistfile" for the list of packages
As some of those patches are Kernel patches, you probably need the "-x autoreboot=true" option


By the way, your system may already have some of those patches or later ones that supersede them; To check, try `swlist -l patch |grep "<patch description>", and if a higher-numbered patch is shown, the requirement is already met.

Mind if I ask why you closed this the way you did?

The very first link I posted on how to install patches mentions:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
10.If you are installing a patch bundle from the swinstall GUI, set the option to Patch Match Target

If you are performing a command line installation, use the command:

swinstall -x autoreboot=true -x \patch_match_target=true -s /dev/rmt/0m

tfewster,

Thanks for the offer.  I don't mind you getting the points.  I was just more curious why it was closed the way it was since the original question was how to install a patch and the link I provided talks about all ways and provides specific instructions.
