I got two answers.  The easiest was to use 'pkgchk -l -p
/full/path/name'.  Another suggestion was to grep for the filename in

Thanks for the quick responses.

Subject: Determining package/product that owns a file


I'm trying to determine what product owns a file.  What I am really
trying to do is install Sun ONE Studio 4 Update 1 (per doc is supported
only on Solaris 7 and up) on a Solaris 2.6 system.  The s/w installs
fine, but when I try to run the ide, it complains about not being able
to find the file (which in fact doesn't exist).  I do have a though.  

I have tried some searching, but I guess I'm not using the right

How can I find out what product/patch/etc will give me that file so I
can determine if that will run on 2.6? 

Thanks, I'll summarize.
