Pkgchk error Solaris 10

Hi Guys,
I ran a package check command on my solaris 10 sparc system and it displayed most of the packages with errors:


Code:
pkgchk
ERROR: /boot/amd64/x86.miniroot-safe

Is this normal or is there something wrong ? Please help.

Thanks

No, that's not normal. What filesystem are you using on this computer? Also, is it running SPARC or x86, your post seems to indicate both??

Thanks Dustin, i am using both sparc and x86. Both running solaris 10. And they both displayed the same errors when I ran package check.

Any info about this will be appreciated.

Thanks

What file system are you running? It might be UFS, ZFS, etc...

Hi Dustin,
I am running ZFS on my sparc machine and running UFS on my x86 machine.

Thank you

Some of these may not be such a disaster. You may have edited your GRUB menu.lst , for example.

miniroot-safe doesn't sound so benign - if you want to boot failsafe you'll need a working copy of this image.

Are there any other files reporting as being modified (you say "most of the packages with errors"). I ask as you'll see these failures very frequently with files under /etc.

Cheers,
ZB
