swmtool - install, upgrade, and remove software packages


swmtool [ -d directory ]


The swmtool command invokes the admintool(1M) application, which is preselected to add or remove software. Using the swmtool command, you can add software from a product CD or hard disk to an installed system, or you can remove software from an installed system. Once logged in, you may run swmtool to examine the packages on your local system. Membership in the sysadmin group (gid 14) is used to res- trict access to administrative tasks. Members of the sysad- min group can use swmtool to add or remove software pack- ages. Non-members have read-only permissions (where applica- ble). Help is available by using the Help button.


-d directory Specify the directory containing the software to be installed.


Example 1: A sample display of using swmtool command. The following example starts the admintool() application and tells it to look for software packages in the local directory /cdrom/cdrom0/s0 (the default directory for a CD when running Volume Manager). example% /usr/sbin/swmtool -d /cdrom/cdrom0/s0
