This is a “hollow” package:
The package content is not delivered on any non-global zone.
However, the package installation information is required on all non-global
The package delivers software that should not be visible in
all non-global zones. Examples include kernel drivers and system configuration
files that work only in the global zone. This setting allows the non-global
zone to resolve dependencies on packages that are installed only on the global
zone without actually installing the package data.
The package is recognized as being installed in all zones
for purposes of dependency checking by other packages that rely on this package
This package setting includes all of the restrictions defined
for setting SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES to true.
In the global zone, the package is recognized as having been
installed, and all components of the package are installed. Directories are
created, files are installed, and class action and other scripts are run as
appropriate when the package is installed.
In a non-global zone, the package is recognized as having
been installed, but no components of the package are installed. No directories
are created, no files are installed, and no class action or other install
scripts are run when the package is installed.
When the package is removed from the global zone, the system
recognizes that the package was completely installed. Appropriate directories
and files are removed, and class action or other install scripts are run when
the package is removed.
