patch update with single user mode

Hi All,

How do I execute patch update on a single user mode?

Please give me the steps by step procedures?

Is single user mode the same as run level 1?

Thanks.

single user = runlevel s. the patchadd procedure is the same as in runlevel 3.

Bring the system down by doing init S. sample...
#cd / ; sync;sync;sync; init S
....
....
...
(Provide root password when prompted)
...
.....
#who -r will tell you the run state.
#mount /tmp
#TMOUT=0
# cd /var/tmp/10
#./install_all_patches patch_order
