SUMMARY: Adding package with no interaction....

From: Jeff Kennedy (
Date: Tue Aug 22 2000 - 17:12:39 CDT

I needed to use the 'all' keyword at the end of my line. So it would
look like this:

                pkgadd -a /path/to/adminfile -d <pkgname> -r /path/to/responsefile all

You can also use the actual package name (ie. HPJetAdmin) or the '*' to
indicate a wildcard match of all.

Thanks to:
Alan Orndorff Russ Poffenberger
Huzefa Mohamedali Michael Hill
Aaron Lafferty Arthur Darren Dunham
Clifford Thurber Joe Doetzl

Thanks also to Mike Allmen and Tom Crummey for the following:
pkgadd -d <jetadmin package> all <<EOF

Where 0,y,y are default answers to the questions asked by the install.
Replace them as needed to suit your environment.

pkgadd -d . -R /a SUNWglrt SUNWglrtu <<EOF
