  • 1. Patch 115665-09?
    Hi, what is going on with patch 115665-09/116532-02 dependency? When I use pprosvc -d to download patches for my Ultra 2 running Solaris 9 9/04, it always downloads patch 115665-09.jar but refused to install it since it depends on 116532-02 which is not downloaded/installed. So I went to sunsolve, downloaded and here is what happens: u2# patchadd -M `pwd` 116532-02 115665-09 Checking installed patches... One or more patch packages included in 116532-02 are not installed on this system. WARNING: Skipping patch 116532-02 Checking installed patches... ERROR: This patch requires patch 116532-01 which has not been applied to the system. Patchadd is terminating. So, what now? Shall I just ignore this? Also, it happens quite often that in various patches that pprosvc downloads, prepatch and/or postpatch scripts don't have x permission (only r and w) and therefore patchadd fails with an error. I have to remember to do find /var/sadm/spool -name prepatch | xargs chmod 755 and find /var/sadm/spool -name prepatch | xargs chmod 755 for them, but occasionally I forget about that.

Hi erveryone,
i'm starting to learn Solaris, so i have some questions for newbies.
Normally i work an hp-ux. At hp there is a command called ioscan for
checking the hardware. I'm looking for a similar command on solaris. I
need the hardware+type+devicefile. I tried prtconf, but thats not that
what i want.
Can me selp anybody?

You'd need to specify a little more clearly what you mean by "checking 
the hardware", Rene. Is this testing it, returning information about it, 
or what?  And which hardware?  Disks? Tapes?  Memory?

Is there any free download-able Solaris 8 program to convert PDF file

Something similiar to the pre-packaged "pdftops" program under /usr/
sfw/bin in Solaris 10.

Copying backup to the CD or DVD file system...

The DVD-RAM on externally mounted 7210-025 is made okay and can mount it and 
read contents but Intellistation will not boot from it.

Reading around web, nothing specific to AIX6, but a lot on AIX5, suggests to 
go to Fix Central and download devices.sddpcm.53.rte.
Using search function in Fix Central under 6.1 produces zero finds.

Suggestions appreciated.


4.Finding device filenames for USB devices

Suppose I plug a USB device such as a camera or UPS or keyboard into a 
USB port.

How do I find the filename of the linux device associated with the port?
