To install an application or application set:
For example, choose Disk A, Disk B, CD-ROM, Other, or Network.
If you are installing from the network, you must enter the server name, then click on Update View to see the packages available. If the applications available on the network server are not in the standard location (/var/spool/dist), you can specify the path after typing the server name and a colon (for example: foo.sco.com:/var/spool/tmp).
When you make your selection, packages available on the medium are displayed.
The Add Application window appears. You might be prompted for additional information in this window. After you respond to any required prompts, the new application or application set is installed on your system.
where N is the CD-ROM driver number.
When a package fails to install for any reason, the GUI may still report that the set of packages that contains it was installed successfully. The message reporting the failure is generated by pkgadd(1M).
Similarly, if the removal of a package fails, the GUI does not report the failure. The icon for the set of packages goes away and is not replaced by the package icon for the package that is still on the system.
The log created by pkgadd, which contains details of the failed processes, is in /var/sadm/install/logs/pkg.log where pkg is the name of the package.
If you cannot successfully install certain UNIX® applications, you might need to modify a variable needed by the application's installation script:
For UNIX release 3.2, enter 3.2.
After you install an application onto your system, you can copy the icons for the individual programs associated with the application to a folder (the system determines the appropriate folder to copy the icon to, usually the Applications folder). This allows you to start the application program by double-clicking on its icon.
Icons representing packages in the set appear.
A window appears containing installable icons representing application programs contained in the package.
An icon for the selected application program is copied to the appropriate folder.
