This chapter explains how to specify that modification of a particular action should be performed in a new boot environment (BE) and how to specify that additional operations are needed when a particular package action is modified. To specify these requirements, use an action attribute called an actuator.
In general, actuators are needed only when the package system is operating on a live system image. A live image is the image mounted at / of the active, running BE of the current zone.
