Re: swinstall

Un shar them, then use swcopy to put them into a depot first:

for i in *.depot
do
swcopy ${PWD}/$i \* @ /var/spool/sw
done

Re: swinstall

Oops, you said from the command line - I think you need to use swpackage to make a tape.

Re: swinstall

swpackage -s /tmp/patch_depot -x target_type=tape -d /dev/rmt/0m

Re: swinstall

1) Download the patches into /tmp for example
2) Un-shar them
# cd /tmp
# for X in PH*.htm
> do
> sh ${X}
> done
3) Pack 'em
# PDIR=/tmp/patch_depot
# mkdir ${PDIR}
# for X in PH*.depot
> do
> swcopy -s ${PWD}/${X} \* @ ${PDIR}
> done
4) List and see
# swlist -s ${PDIR}

Now run swinstall on /tmp/patch_depot dir.

Re: swinstall

Sanjay & S.K. -

That will get them collected into a depot but will he be able to install them all "from the command line" using the depot? I didn't think that would work?
