Solaris 2.6 (sparc) installation problem (minor)

Solaris 2.6 (sparc) installation problem (minor)

Post by Leon M. Clan » Wed, 17 Sep 1997 04:00:00



There is an error in the postinstall script for the package SUNWxilmn
on the Solaris 2.6 (sparc) CD.

The error causes four files in the directory /usr/openwin/demo/xil/example2
to have incorrect symbolic links to files in /usr/openwin/demo/xil/example1.

To correct the links, do the following as root:

        cd /usr/openwin/demo/xil/example2
        rm -f brainscan.data.Z brainscan.header example2.c window.c
        ln -s ../example1/brainscan.data.Z brainscan.data.Z
        ln -s ../example1/brainscan.header brainscan.header
        ln -s ../example1/example1.c       example2.c
        ln -s ../example1/window.c         window.c

This fix will not affect removing, installing, or patching SUNWxilmn.

1. Solaris 2.6 AnswerBook2 problem (minor)

Installation of the XGL 3.3 Reference Manual, package name SUNWAxg
results in five files with unresolvable symbolic links due to an error
in the pkgmap file supplied with the package.

Use the example below to correct the problem.  The example assumes you
specified /opt as the parent of the AnswerBook2 directories:

        cd /opt/answerbooks/english/solaris_2.6/SUNWAxg/ps/XGLREFMAN

        rm 0029_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_DMAP_SWITCHES.
        rm 0033_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_ILLUMINATION.3
        rm 0034_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_LIGHT_COMPONEN
        rm 0040_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_TMAP_SWITCHES.
        rm 0150_XGL_CTX_NURBS_SURF_ISO_CURVE_V_NUM.

        ln -s 0049_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_FRONT_DMAP_SWITCHES \
                0029_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_DMAP_SWITCHES.

        ln -s 0050_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_FRONT_ILLUMINATION. \
                rm 0033_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_ILLUMINATION.3

        ln -s 0051_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_FRONT_LIGHT_COMPONE \
                0034_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_LIGHT_COMPONEN

        ln -s 0057_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_FRONT_TMAP_SWITCHES \
                0040_XGL_3D_CTX_SURF_BACK_TMAP_SWITCHES.

        ln -s 0149_XGL_CTX_NURBS_SURF_ISO_CURVE_U_NUM. \
                0150_XGL_CTX_NURBS_SURF_ISO_CURVE_V_NUM.

The AnswerBook2 HTTP server is not affected by this problem.  The server finds the
correct XGL reference manual page despite the bad symbolic links.
