SUMMARY: Problem installing patches

From: Michael Hawk (

My original problem:

  I am trying to install the latest recommended patches on a Solaris 2.5
  Every patch fails with this error:
  pkgadd: ERROR: checkinstall script did not complete successfully

The answer: pkgadd runs ar uid nobody, and thus, permissions on the patch
             directory and sub-structure must be generous.
