To identify the version of your Solaris 8 MU software, type:
# cat /etc/release
To identify the patches the MU software applied to your system, type:
# showrev -p
If you compare the showrev -p output from applying the Solaris 8 MU5 software to the showrev -p output from installing the Solaris 8 7/01 operating environment, you will note that the following patches are not applied in the MU5 installation:
Solaris 8 MU5 SPARC Platform Edition:
Solaris 8 MU5 Intel Platform Edition:
These patches are needed to generate the Solaris 8 7/01 operating environment, but are not needed to apply the Solaris 8 MU5 patches.
