there does not appear to be a complete repository. Many people suggested, for which I got lots of hits, but they all appear to be
current sun patch mirrors. Several people suggested sunsolve online. Just to
inform anyone who doesn't know, archives (including sunsolve) only have the
most recent revision of a patch. One site in Germany,, was
promising but did not work. They archive old patches, but I did not see
these four.

If anyone has these, my list of patches needed is down to just four:


if anyone knows where I can find these or if anyone has these and would like
to share them I would be very very grateful.
