Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) Online Release Notes Update

Disk Space Requirements Can Be Exaggerated by the Upgrade Process (4041733)

The upgrade program can exaggerate by as much as 30 percent the amount of space required for upgrades to systems with Solaris software. Systems affected by this problem cannot be upgraded without deselecting packages or finding more space.

Workaround: You can manually reallocate disk space among file systems or use the Software Customization menu to remove software packages that are not needed.
