The problem we reported was this:
Has anybody seen this problem when trying to
list information about patches via showrev
under Solariss 2.4?
Can it be fixed, short of reinstalling Solaris?
# showrev -p
showrev: Method program unexpectedly terminated with signal 11
There have been several responses in just one day's time.
Most suggested looking closely at the /var/sadm/pkg
directory to make sure that -
1) It contained only directories
2) The permissions were correct on the directories.
There was a 'plain file' in /var/sadm/pkg that did
not belong there. It was deleted and the
showrev -p command now works correctly.
Thanks to all who responded. Here's a list of all such
folks up to now:
