Installing Solaris patches in single user mode
I know this question may sound crazy, but why do we install Solaris patches
in single user mode?
I'm hoping for confirmation of a specific technical reason that I believe is
I already know the obvious: Sun recommends it. But no one knows why. I
think I do, but just want to confirm.
Please respond here. If you send me email, double check my address (to

I already have Oracle 188.8.131.52 on the machine. Now I want to install
Oracle 8.1.7 on it. Is there any guideline that I can follow?
Here is the OS machine of Solaris:

What is the procedure to boot in single user mode from the Solaris 9 x86
On SPARC I would only have to type boot cdrom -s but on x86 I'm somehow

After you get past the bus scan, and then pick the boot device, it
should present you with a prompt to
(b)oot or go (i)nteractive
Assuming you've picked the CD already as the device, just do a
'b -s' there.
Darren Dunham ...Single Box installation OCS 10G release 2 on Solaris 9
I've been leeching from this newsgroup for years, posting a little
follow-up now and then.. And finally the time has arrived for me to
try and post something useful here.
Well, useful.. It's a question, so no idea what someone can do with
that besides trying to answer it.
But give it your best shot! :)
I won't mind, really.
Is there ANY documentation about a single box install on Solaris?
Right now I am using a document I found on Metalink, but it describes
a single box installation of OCS 903 on Linux.

OK, I have a problem with _one_ of my machines here at home. I have used

intel P4 with 1.25 GB Ram) it starts the installation just fine and

I have a new Solaris machine that doesn't have any install tools (no
gcc, make, ...) I am not able to install any software on my machine. I
downloaded the ISO's from Sun's website but when I install the OS, it
doesn't have the tools. Am I installing something incorrectly, or does
Solaris not come with these tools? If it doesn't, how can I install gcc
and make with compiling the install files?

I've got a x86 PC with one HDD and Solaris 10 on it.
I would like to install Ubuntu side-by-side to S10, but don't know how.
S10 starts with GRUB.
Is there a way to convert or shrink the S10 partition to have some
space for Linux?

Hi there, I have an old Sun Box, is an Ultra SPARC-IIi 300MHz, right now I
am using Solaris 9. I have a two parts question, first one is, can I
install Solaris 10 on this machine?, maybe is just to outdated for it.
Second question is, can I download all the Solaris 9 software from
"www.sun.com" as DVD, into a Windows XP box, them burn them as a DVD, will
it work on my Sun Box?, or once I download them in to the Windows box, do
I have to expand each zip file, them burn them into a DVD, and again the
same question will it work on the Sun Box?

Thats really the only way*. Apps shouldn't care what version...
