Lightbulb update


in windows update you get the latest patches
in your system, in solaris is such an option?

by downloading patches in unix comes with tar.z
in windows winzip, adobe etc helps you to unzip
uncompres the files
in solaris can anyone remind me what is the
apropriate command or program to have in order
the files to be ready to install??

thanks for the help.

uncompress and tar

uncompress decompresses the .Z file(s)

tar bundles and unbundles tar files.

Suggest you review the output of these commands:

man compress

man uncompress

man tar

also, you might find this helpful (if installed on your system):

man gzip

Check out " showrev -p " or " patchadd -p " for information about installed patches. Also try pkginfo for information about packages installed.

For installation of packages use pkgadd or rather use admintool for any system administrative purposes.

Hope this helps !!
