The Solaris 10 10/08 patch list provides a list of patches pre-applied to the Solaris 10 10/08 release. Patches released after the Solaris 10 10/08 release can be found on the My Oracle Support.
The patches that are listed in this chapter have been applied to the Solaris 10 Operating System in one of the following ways:
These patches are located in the /var/sadm/patch directory on an installed system.
These patches were applied when the Solaris 10 OS was created. Therefore, these patches are not located in the /var/sadm/patch directory.
The showrev -p command provides a list of all patches that were applied to the installed system, regardless of how they were applied. The Solaris 10 software includes a known and tested level of patches. However, patches cannot be backed out of the Solaris 10 release.
