Although pkgadd boots non-booted zones into an "administrative" state when installing a package, it seems that such a package addition will fail if the package contains administrative scripts.
An example occurred to me yesterday with blastwave's subversion package. Relevant output from pkg-get -i subversion: ## Booting non-running zone <reference> into administrative state ## Installing package <CSWsvn> in zone <reference> subversion - Version control rethought(sparc) 1.4.0,REV=2006.09.26 ## Executing checkinstall script. /var/tmp//install5ka4xm/checkinstall.ka4xm: /tmp/sh63410: cannot create pkginstall: ERROR: checkinstall script did not complete successfully Installation of <CSWsvn> on zone <reference> failed. No changes were made to the system. ## Restoring state of global zone <reference> ERROR: could not add CSWsvn. I raised a bug at blastwave (http://www.blastwave.org/mantis/view_bug_page.php?f_id=0002121) but, apart from agreeing that this doesn't work, they do not care to pursue this. Is there a real bug here? Ceri This message posted from opensolaris.org _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
