How to install packages from the Solaris installation CD-ROM

This is a rather simple proc├ędure, but I'd rather put it here, just in case... ;-)

Insert the CD-ROM (or DVD-ROM) in your machine drive, then type the following command:

pkgadd -v -d /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_10/Product

Then, be patient, especially if the installation support inserted is a DVD (these things take a long time to read).

The command pkgadd will then display a list of packages on the installation media and ask you to select the packages you'd like to install.

From then on, the installation procedure is pretty much standard.

Hope this helps!
