installing patch 112438-02



  • 1. rc3.d script, `cd`, :no home directory (solaris 9)
    Hello, I have an rc script (rc3.d) that calls my script In the middle of the script I do a `cd` for it to go to it's home directory. But instead I get: :no home directory Does root not know it's home directory at this point ? Any input appreciated. thanks,Charlie.
  • 2. Not freeing up tcp port fast enough?
    Hello, I'm implementing a tcp server and an associated client. One feature about this server is that the client can invoke a remote restart command which causes the server to restart itself. This means that it will stop what it's doing, remove all clients, close all sockets and then restart from main() again. Now I've been trying this out but in some rare cases I'm getting problems where the restart fails. The reason is that Solaris doesn't free up the port fast enough and thus the server will say that another application is using the same port when calling bind(). Whats the common way to handle this? I have not seen it on any other unix systems so far. Thanks. -- Henrik
  • 3. Memory and Scan Rate
    Greetings! We are running Solaris 10 3/05. The system has run out of memory a few times due to different causes, such as memory leaks and dodgy scripts written by some developers. What's interesting is that vmstat's scan rate (the sr column) shows 0. Shouldn't the page scanner have kicked in and Scan Rate be a non-zero value? Cheers.
  • 4. How to use unix2dos on file (taken from tape) that is all one line (needs broken up)
    Using tcopy I can determine block size, but that has more to do with moving data off/on to tape than to split a file up into many lines (which is what I need). Better yet, I do have a "lrecl" (record length I am hoping?!!!), but does anyone know how to use that to do what I need with unix2dos? TIA - Matt

Can you show us what you did exactly after downloading,
plus the output of "uname -a" ?

2.Patch 112438 on Solaris 2.6

Hello all,
    Is there a way that I can apply Sun's 112438 patch on a Solaris
2.6 system.  The patch says that it is for Solaris 7-8, but in the
readme file, it states "For Solaris 2.0-2.6 releases, refer to the file and/or the README within the patch for instructions
on using the generic 'installpatch' and 'backoutpatch' scripts
provided with each patch."
    I haven't found any such information... yet.
    Some advice please!


3.Problem installing Solaris 8 02/02 on "2nd" disk

I have a Sun Blade 150 with two 36Gb disks. I installed Solaris 8
02/02 on c0t0d0s0 ok (disk 0). As part of this installation, I setup
/spareroot (removed it's entry from /etc/vfstab), swap and /export
partitions on c0t2d0s# (disk 1).
I then tried to install Solaris 8 into c0t2d0s0 of disk 1 but my
following procedure did not work:
When you get to specify the partitions, do not specify any on c0t0d0
(disk 0), and match those previously set on c0t2d0 (disk 1) except
instead of /spareroot on c0t2d0s0, set it as /. When you get to the
stage of the software actually being installed off the cd, within a
second, the screen displays the progress indicator as 100% complete
followed by the # prompt. No software is installed on c0t2d0s0.
Booting and running off disk 0 is ok.
What am I doing wrong?
TIA, Terry
