This section describes issues that are related to the installation of the Solaris OS.
When you install Solaris 10 OS, either the StarOffice or the StarSuite software is also automatically installed, depending on which language you select. The languages and the corresponding software that these languages support are listed as follows:
StarOffice and StarSuite cannot coexist in the same system. If you want to replace a software that you accidentally installed, follow these steps.
Insert the Solaris 10 Software - 3 CD or Solaris 10 Operating System DVD in the drive.
Change to the Product directory, for example, /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_10/Product.
Replace the software.
To replace StarOffice with StarSuite, use the following commands:
# pkgrm SUNWsogm SUNWsom # pkgadd -d . SUNWsoagm SUNWsoam
To replace StarSuite with StarOffice, use the following commands:
# pkgrm SUNWsoagm SUNWsoam # pkgadd -d . SUNWsogm SUNWsom
Some localized documentation collections in PDF format have package names that are longer than nine characters. To install these PDF collections on servers that are running Solaris 7 or 8 software, you must first install two patches.
Workaround: For instructions on how to install these patches, see the Solaris Documentation Important Information file on Solaris 10 OS Documentation DVD. This file is located in the following directory:
When you select a locale for your installation, additional related locales might also be installed. This change in behavior occurs in the Solaris 10 release because all full locales, with message translations, and the Asian and Japanese partial locales, locale enabler, have been repackaged based on language support for locales. Other partial locales are still packaged and installed based on geographic region, such as Central Europe.
If you use Solaris Live Upgrade with multiple CDs to install the Solaris 10 release, the Languages CD installs all languages by default.
After the installation, if you log in to the system in a locale that is different than the locale you selected during installation, garbled characters might be displayed. After you log in to any of these locales, the English locale is displayed.
Workaround: During installation, select the custom install option. Uncheck any languages that you do not want to install during the Languages CD installation.
