Solaris 9 Installation Guide

Installing Software With Web Start Installation Programs With Finish Scripts

You can use finish scripts to install additional software after the Solaris operating environment is installed. Some software programs are installed by the Solaris Web Start program, which prompts you to enter information during the installation. To maintain a hands-off installation, you can run the Solaris Web Start program with the -nodisplay or -noconsole options.

Runs the installer without a graphic user interface. Use the default product installation unless the installation was modified by the -locales option.


Runs the installation without any interactive text console device. Useful when paired with -nodisplay for UNIX script use.
