I need to update the following packages:


I read that the updated versions of these packages can be found on the latest version of Solaris, and that it's possible to just install the specific packages I want.

I can only find them as directories in the .iso and they all have the following structure:

|-- archive
|   |-- none.7z
|-- install
|   |-- copyright
|   |-- depend
|   |-- i.none
|-- pkginfo
|-- pkgmap
|-- reloc

Is it possible to install these as some sort of package? Or turn them into a .pkg?

Thanks for any help.

They already are a package - simply use pkgadd -d /path/to/cdrom/Product SUNWjaf SUNWjato SUNWjmail or whatever the parent directory is containing those subdirectories.
