Add a Software Package with pkgadd Utility

Here's how you add packages to the Solaris operating system. As you can see, it's fairly self-explanatory. Here are a few examples.

From CDROM
#cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_X/Product
#pkgadd -d . SUNWpackage

Another example is a package that was copied to the /tmp directory
#pkgadd -d /tmp SUNWpackage

Install Netscape 7.0. Download the zip file to /tmp. Ensure required patches are installed.
#cd /tmp
#unzip NSinstaller.zip
#cd NSinstaller
#./NSinstaller
Go to installation directory
#cd /opt/SUNWns
# ./netscape &
or
#cd /tmp
#unzip downloadfile.zip
#cd unzipped_directory
#pkgadd -d . SUNWnsxp SUNWnsm SUNWnsb SUNWnspsm
Go to installation directory
#cd/opt/SUNWns
#./netscape &
