Do I have to install this patch, or already there. Can some one explain how to read this output.



thanks

Your example is flawed, the string grepped is not in the string printed.

I think what you want is:
Code:
showrev -p 137111-04

It may show older revisions of the patch, but make sure that there is an entry for 137111-04 or greater...

I hope this helps..
