Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Understanding Patches on Solaris-10

Hi,

  • This means, all 3 patches already installed on server, and we don't need to take any action?
  • If I take example of 120272-31, then I can see 120272-40, but it says ...

Code:
 "Patch: 120272-40 Obsoletes:  Requires: 119042-09, 121901-01, 122539-05 Incompatibles:  Packages: SUNWbzip, SUNWsfwhea, SUNWsmagt, SUNWsmcmd, SUNWsmmgr".

What it means, Obsoletes/Incompatibles ?

Thanks

In this case, "obsoletes" has a meaning similar to "supersedes".

Actually, "supersedes" seems like a better word to me; but maybe I missed something.

Correct. No action is necessary.

showrev -p is providing four pieces of information for each patch already installed in your Solaris 10 or older machine.
  • Requires: list of patches that needed to be already installed for this patch to be applied
  • Obsoletes: list of older patches this new patch obsoletes (or supersedes as Neo suggested).
  • Incompatibles: list of future (at the patch creation time) patches that will require this patch removal to be applicable. This field is almost always empty except when interim patches (hot fixes) have been applied.
  • Packages: list of packages this patch applies to, i.e. this patch has modified files belonging to these packages.
