Example warning from non-GUI installer
But patch installation of 147436-01 resp. 147437-01 fails:
Loading patches installed on the system...
Loading patches requested to install.
Checking patches that you specified for installation.
The following requested patches will not be installed because
at least one required patch is not installed on this system.
0 For patch 147436-01, required patch 142909-17 does not exist.
0 For patch 147436-01, required patch 144500-19 does not exist.
No patches to install.
Kernel update patches
- 144500-19 on Solaris on SPARC
- 144501-19 on Solaris on x86
update the Solaris linker from linker version SUNWprivate_4.2 to linker version SUNWprivate_4.6. This introduced a regression, which is fixed in linker patch
- 147436-01 on Solaris on SPARC
- 147437-01 on Solaris on x86
Thus, if kernel patches 144500-19 resp. 144501-19 are installed, the linker patches should be applied, too.
