Command-Line Options for the Installer, Uninstaller, and install_patches Utility for Oracle Solaris 10 and Linux Platforms

This appendix describes all the options for the package installer and uninstaller..

Command-Line Options for the Graphical Installer

The following command-line options are valid when you are starting the graphical installer.

Install only in the current zone. When you run the installer in the global zone, this option makes the installed product available only in that zone.
Display information on the options.
Disable system architecture checking (Oracle Solaris based systems only)
--javahome directory
Use the JDK in directory when running the installer. This option is needed when the installer cannot locate a JDK in a standard location on your system, and you need to point it to one.
Perform runtime libraries only installation.
--locale locale
Override the default locale for the installer with the specified locale. Valid locales are en (English), ja (Japanese), and zh (Simplified Chinese).
Use NFS server installation mode, in which the installer does not check the server for the required Oracle Solaris patches or create symbolic links in the /usr/bin directory.
--output output_file
Write all installer output to the specified file.
--record state_file.xml
Record an installer session in the graphical installer so that you can use repeat the installation on another system with the command-line installer. This option is especially useful when you want to install a subset of the product components on multiple systems.
--tempdir directory
By default, the installer extracts temporary data into the /tmp directory. If there is not sufficient space in the /tmp directory on your system, you can specify another directory for the installer to use.
Write verbose output to the console.
