I have created a PSF file, and runned the swpackage command to create the depault
swpackage -s package.psf -x swpackage.distribution_target_directory=/package
But when I run the swinstall, I noticed that this is a depault, not a software boundle.
So my question is, how do I make a software boundle?
Should I use : make_bundles ?

So what? A SD depot can contain SD bundles and/or SD products. What's wrong with yours?
This just mentions how to use swcopy to fiddle with existing depots, not how to create them from scratch.
See these threads about packaging depots:

But when I install some softwares from vendors;
such as IBM Tivoli Storage Manager.
I only got one file.
How do I create one file?
Is that called a software boundle?
Is that when I should use the "make_boundles" tool from ignite?

As I said before a SD bundle is what's in a depot.
It appears you want a tape depot vs a directory depot. See above threadId=1241895 link.
# swpackage -x target_type=tape -s package.psf @ /tmp/product-version.depot

That is what I was looking for..
Now I got permission errors..
You do not have the required
permissions to perform this operation.
Check permissions using the
"swacl" command or see your system
administrator for assistance. Or,
to manage applications designed and
packaged for nonprivileged mode,
see the "run_as_superuser" option in the
"sd" man page. â

You are root?
(You should also use your own depot name and path, not mine, /package/???. :-)

So you are saying that swpackage is working but swinstall is now failing?
Can you use swlist on that depot you made?
This permission error could be due to swagentd or networking. See these threads:
