for your suggestions

The Answer:
        No you cannot CDE for 2.6 on a 2.5 system the libraries are different.
Thanks for all your help. For those who suggested on older version of CDE: The
customer is already running an older version of CDE but for some reason wanted
to upgrade without upgrading the system.
The Question:

I have someone who sent me the following e-mail:
I would like to install CDE from the Solaris 2.6 CD onto our machines
that are currently running Solaris 2.5. We are not ready to go to Solaris 2.6
yet, as this will be a major undertaking. Is there a way to make it work.

> Then I remembered I workaround to make some other pkgs work on different OS
> release. What I really want to know: Is this possible and if so how?
