Installing the Required Oracle Solaris 10 Patches

Several operating system patches are required for the proper operation of the compilers and tools in the Oracle Developer Studio 12.5 release on Oracle Solaris 10 platforms. See Patch Identification Numbers and Descriptions for Oracle Solaris 10 Platforms for more information about the patches.

To install the required Oracle Solaris 10 patches, run the install_patches.sh utility that is included in the downloaded distribution.

If you are running the graphical installer, the System Analysis page informs you if your system does not have the required OS patches (unless you specified the --nfs-server option when starting the installer). You can then run the install_patches.sh utility by clicking More Info, and then clicking Execute install_patches.sh Now.

If you are running the command-line installer, run the install_patches.sh utility after installation to ensure that your system has the required OS patches.

If you have installed the Oracle Developer Studio 12.5 software on an Oracle Solaris 10 server and the software is going to be used from client systems, then do the following:

  1. On each client system, mount the directory on the server into which you downloaded the package installer.

    # mount server:filesystem download-directory
  2. Change to the directory where you saved the downloaded distribution, using one of the following commands:

    # cd download-directory/OracleDeveloperStudio12.5-solaris-sparc-pkg
    # cd download-directory/OracleDeveloperStudio12.5-solaris-x86-pkg
    # cd download-directory/OracleDeveloperStudio12.5-linux-x86-rpm
  3. On each Oracle Solaris 10 client system, run the install_patches.sh utility to install the required Oracle Solaris 10 patches.

    # ./install_patches.sh

When the patch installation is complete, see After Installing Oracle Developer Studio 12.5 for information about setting up user access and testing the installation.

See Installing Only the Runtime Libraries on Oracle Solaris 10 and Linux to determine if you need to install the runtime libraries on other systems.
