The Application Installer is the preferred method for adding packages to the UnixWare system, but you can add packages or sets from the command line using the pkgadd(1M) command:
medium is the medium on which the software is contained. For example, use -d ctape1 for the first cartridge tape drive or -d diskette1 for the first disk drive.
If you know the name of the package, enter it on the pkgadd
command line and skip step 5. For example:
pkgadd -d ctape1 mypackage
If you did not enter a package name in step 3, a list of packages on the medium is displayed.
In almost all cases, you can use the standard procedure to successfully install software using pkgadd(1M).
In some instances, you might want to provide alternatives to the information found in the default admin file, located in /var/sadm/install/admin. When you install a set, the default admin file is always used.
To specify an admin file, use the -a adminfile options, where adminfile is the name of the admin file to use.
pkgadd -d cdrom1 -a pkgAadmin pkgA
pkgadd -d cdrom1 -a check pkgA
