In the package More Info listings, it will state where the files will go after running pkgadd. /usr/local is the default directory chosen by the large majority of software developers, so news Inside the directory SolarisStudio12.3-solaris-x86-pkg was a shell script called solarisstudio.sh which i executed and which in-turn seemed to install the suite. The packaged files are named "BESAgent-8.1.551.0.sparc_sol10.pkg".

See the next question also. For example: get gzip-1.4-sol8-sparc-local for a SPARC/Solaris 8 system. connected. http://iipseconline.com/pkgadd-error/pkgadd-error-attempt-to-process-datastream-failed.html Any way I unzip it and just for grins ran pkgadd naming the tarball and not unexpectedly it did not like it.

Then answer the questions to finish the install. I can \"reproduce\" your problem, when trying to pkgadd the gzipped package-file. Also look at the README file.

It might say,

invalid compressed data -- crc error!

However, I am not familiar with the syntax required in order to add (execute) the files to the Solaris machines. install all the packages under /usr/local Mount NFS file system for /opt/apache2 Move contents /usr/local/apache2 to /opt/apache2 Make the following modifications in /opt/apache2/apachectl script (or create a new startup script) LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/apache2/lib thanks! I think that the Solaris code freaks out the virus scanner when it was being downloaded through Internet Explorer.

But, once you move the files to your Solaris machine, check the file size using the File Info link in the package listing. Connecting to ibiblio.org[152.2.210.81]:80... The libXm.so.3 library is in the /usr/dt/lib directory on most Solaris systems.  If you do not have this library directory in your library path, you can add something like the one we use:

http://iipseconline.com/pkgadd-error/pkgadd-error-attempt-to-process-datastream-failed-open-of.html The ‘as' program can be found in the directory /usr/ccs/bin/ You will need to add this to your UNIX PATH.

turned out it was corrupt download... Installing patch packages... If I get a bit of time I'll create a new vm and try the install with the pkg in /tmp as I would like to get the pkgadd to install The name of the package is SFWsudo.pkg.

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.
