    About Installling patches in Solaris9

    807559
      Hello,
      I need to install Oracle10 in Solaris9, i have installed the the following about requiered patches 112233-11, SunOS 5.9: Kernel Patch
      111722-04, SunOS 5.9: Math Library (libm) patch:

      showrev -p |grep 111722-04
      Patch: 111722-04 Obsoletes: Requires: Incompatibles: Packages: SUNWlibms, SUNWlmsx, SUNWlibm


      # showrev -p |grep 112233-11
      Patch: 112874-31 Obsoletes: 113165-01, 113475-03, 115480-01 Requires: 112233-11 Incompatibles: Packages: SUNWcsr, SUNWcsl, SUNWcslx, SUNWhea, SUNWarc, SUNWarcx, SUNWcstl, SUNWcstlx, SUNWdpl, SUNWdplx
      Patch: 112874-34 Obsoletes: 113165-01, 113475-03, 115480-01 Requires: 112233-11 Incompatibles: Packages: SUNWcsr, SUNWcsl, SUNWcslx, SUNWhea, SUNWarc, SUNWarcx, SUNWcstl, SUNWcstlx, SUNWdpl, SUNWdplx

      Do i really have installed the patch 112233-11?, it would be dangerous to install it?, i have ORACLE9 and WEBSPHERE in the same server.

          Hello,

          your post lacks your current kernel patch level and the installed release. Maybe you have already installed 112233-12 or even a more recent release of Solaris 9. E.g. Solaris 9 4/04 has the initial kernel patch level 112233-12 or Solaris 9/05 kernel patch level 118558-11.

          Use uname -a and cat /etc/release to obtain the information.

              Hello Pablo,

              118558-33 was obsoleted by 118558-39 on 11 Jan 2007. I would recommend to visit the [*Oracle forums*|http://forums.oracle.com/forums/main.jspa] and/or the contract-customer-only patch forum (this is a [*link*|http://blogs.sun.com/patch/entry/patch_forums_now_available_for] to an blog entry describing a procedure to access this "private" forum).

              I don't know if it's save to apply the latest Solaris 9 patch cluster. You can use updatemanager or PCA to install missing patches.
