Installing Software on Multiple Systems

I have been given the task of installing subversion on rhe4 32 and 64 bit, suse9 ia64, hpux 11.22 ia64, hpux 11.11 pa_risc, solaris 2.8 sparc, and irix 6.5.

How can I do this? I know that rhe5 and debian have things like yum and apt for packages. What are the equivalents for these systems?

Yeah.... I know. I need help Smilie

HP-Ux uses SAM or swinstall. Man swinstall for further information or go to docs.hp.com.
On Solaris you use the AdminTool or pkgadd. Man pkgadd for further information or go to docs.sun.com

Are Solaris 2.8 and Solaris 8 the same thing?

I think it is SunOS and Solaris -- a historical quirk with names. For example, in the installed version of Solaris 10:
$ uname -rvis
SunOS 5.10 Generic_120012-14 i86pc

The page at Package management system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia contains a list of package managers, most with reference pointers ... cheers, drl

Ok that makes more sense.

So is there a way to make pkgadd get the packages off the internet? Or do I have to download each one individually? Where should I get them from?
