Can't install 112438-01



  • 1. Using LVM to snapshot backup a database
    Are there people that have worked with LVM to snapshot a linux file system and so backup your data. I know of people using fssnap with Solaris to backup there file system and so there Oracle database.... Are there people that use this or know what the good things and the bad things are of this way of doing things? Regards, Johan Louwers

I've recently taken over the administration of a V120 and want to
install ssh so I can remotely administer this system.  The first step
is to install patch 112438-01.  I can't get this patch to install.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure the directory containing the patch, and all directories up to
the root directory, have r-x permission to all users. See

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.LILO giving 01 01 01 01 error

Hi folks,

I know I'm not the first person to observe this, but
LILO is starting up with L 01 01 01 01... on my older
laptop after I put my 40 gig hard drive in it.
The drive had worked just fine in a newer laptop.
I really prefer the older machine.

I've tried everything it seems, but I still get
the same L 01 01 01 effect. I tried:

* setting LBA32 mode, with no effect
* setting the hard drive CHS geometry, with no effect
    I did this:
           disk = /dev/hda
              bios = 0x80
* running MSDOS fdisk /mbr, which caused an "invalid partition table"
* reinstalling LILO, producing the 01 01 error again.
* upgrading the BIOS, to no effect.

Does anyone know what else can be done?

Might GRUB be a better choice than LILO?


4.lilo and L 01 01 01 01 on older pc with 30GB hard disk

I'm having trouble installing slackware 10.2 on an old IBM Pentium Pro 
PC with a 30GB maxtor.  The old bios only sees 8G, so the previous user 
had installed maxtor's maxblast/EZ-Bios for use with windoze.  EZ-bios 
caused problems with lilo after a slack install (IIRC, something like 
"keyboard translation table not found"), so I used the maxblast floppy 
to remove the ez-bios.  I then repartitioned (1 large linux, 1 smaller 
swap) and reinstalled a bare minimum slack (lilo in mbr on /dev/hda), 
but when I try to boot from /dev/hda1 (swap is on /dev/hda2) I get the 
"L 01 01 01 01" error.  After reading the lilo docs and many usenet 
posts, I tried numerous lilo options (lba32, fix-table, ignore-table, 
specifying the geometry, etc.).  Unfortunately, I still can't get the PC 
to boot from the hard drive.  Using lilo's test option showed two volume 
id listings, one with a partition offset of 63 and the other with 0.  I 
believe lilo always picked the offset of 63.  I tried specifying the 
geometry using each value, with no luck.  I even tried booting with a 
dos diskette and ran fdisk /mbr, but that didn't help either.

If I use the slackware linux rescue disk, the PC boots and runs fine. 
This clue, probably contains the answer, but I'm just not sure what it 
is telling me.

Any ideas on how to make this hardware combo work without using the boot 
floppy is appreciated.  Is the answer that I need to create a small 
(less than 8GB, within the 1024 cylinder limit) /boot partition?  If so, 
I was under the impression that the version of lilo (22.5.9) in 
slackware 10.2 gets around this bios limitation - but I could be wrong.

Thank you for your help,
