A package can be installed from the miniroot from which you booted the system. When you perform a custom JumpStart installation, you boot the system from a DVD, CD, or an NFS-based miniroot. The installation software is loaded and run from this miniroot. Therefore, a package that you stored in the DVD, CD, or NFS-based miniroot is accessible as a local file. Use the following syntax for the package keyword.
package package_name add local_file path
Specifies the package name in the form SUNWname. To view detailed information about packages and their names, on an installed system, use the pkginfo -l command.
Specifies the location of the package. The path must be accessible to the system as a local file while the system is booted from the Solaris Software - 1 CD or from the Solaris Operating System DVD. The system cannot access /net when it is booted from the Solaris Software - 1 CD or from the Solaris Operating System DVD.
In this example, the package profile keyword adds the SUNWnew package from the /Solaris_10/Product directory.
package SUNWnew add local_file /Solaris_10/Product
