I finally scheduled the upgrade of my machine from 4.1.2-something
to (at least) 4.1.5, higher up to follow as soon as possible.
I downloaded the 14 packages 'SubP.#.tar.gz' from IBM onto my
machine and unzipped them - all checksums are o.k.
Aside from checking the current state and doing backups (of course),
the text recommends to un-tar the packages into '/usr/sys/inst.images'.
Is there any special reason to use that directory (other than that
it may be SMIT's default for "update_all") ?
I would like to use another file system for the stuff, because
the free space in my '/usr' plus the free PPs in my 'rootvg'
are too small to hold all those 420 MB.
Alternatively - is it safe to have '/usr/sys/inst.images' as a
symbolic link into some file system in another volume group ?
