Thanks to Casper Dik, John Elser and Robert Petkus..

It seems that my library files for the pkgadd command had become
corrupt. Maybe due to a patch installation.

I copied these from another server and they are working now. There was
one library that was different....


I checked which package this came from (pkgchk -l -p
/usr/lib/ and then checked that this package was installed
correctly, which it was.

Original message below....

Hi All,

I have tried searching for this but think I am finding a lot of red

I have a solaris 8 server that I have hardened using the web site

I am trying to add disk suite but am getting an error....

Solaris Volume Management API's
(sparc) 1.0,REV=2001.
WARNING: Stale lock installed for pkgadd, pkg SUNWlvma quit in analysis
    Removing lock.

## Processing system information. /usr/sadm/install/bin/pkginstall: fatal: relocation error:

I have tried adding /usr/lib to LD_LIBRARY_PATH so it picks up
but still I get the same error.

Anyone else seen this that can shed some light?
