Installing an SVR4 Package

This example demonstrates how to install a SVR4 package. SVR4 packages must be named in a software element of type SVR4. The value of the name attribute of the origin of the publisher is a directory that contains SVR4 package subdirectories or a SVR4 package datastream file. This origin name for SVR4 package subdirectories can be a full file directory path or a file URI. This origin name for a SVR4 package datastream file can be a full file directory path, a file URI, or an HTTP URI.

Tip  - Do not install packages that require user input as part of their installation.
