/usr/bin/pkg2du [-f] [-v] [-d dir] [-o iso] [-l label] [-r release] pkg [pkg ...]
The /usr/bin/pkg2du utility takes one or more packages as input and converts them to Driver Update (DU) format. If the –d option is specified, the resulting DU directory tree is placed in the directory dir. If the –o option is specified, a Solaris ISO image of the DU directory tree is written in the file iso. The ISO image can be burned onto CD/DVD using cdrw(1) or cdrecord(1) (not a SunOS man page) and used during Solaris installation.
At least one of the –d and –o options must be specified. If both are specified, then both an ISO image and a directory tree are generated.
The following options are supported:
Directory where the DU directory should be created.
Create a Solaris ISO image of the DU directory.
If dir/DU or iso exists, remove it without asking first.
Label/volume name of the ISO image (if –o option is specified).
Solaris release number to use. It takes the form of the return from uname –r command, for example, 5.10. If unspecified, the release number of the currently running Solaris is used.
Verbose. Multiple –v options increase verbosity.
The following operands are supported:
One or more packages to be converted to DU format.
The following commands create a DU CD or DVD containing packages SUNWfoo and SUNWbar.
# /usr/bin/pkg2du -r 5.10 -o my.iso SUNWfoo SUNWbar # /usr/bin/cdrw -i my.iso
