. . . . . . . Installation Guide

SCO Skunkware 2000 contains packages suitable for installation on SCO OpenServer 5 systems with the SCO Software Manager (/etc/custom).

SCO Skunkware 2000 is both an installation media recognizable by custom and a mountable filesystem. In the text that follows, the string mount-point will refer to the full pathname of the CD-ROM mount point (for example, you may choose to mount the CD-ROM on /usr/skunkware in which case mount-point would refer to /usr/skunkware).

Installation on SCO OpenServer 5

The following is repeated in the Skunkware 2000 release notes in the section "Installing the Skunkware 2000 Software".

To install the SCO Skunkware 2000 software, mount the CDROM and run the INSTALL program:

   # mount -r /dev/cd0 /<mount-point>
   # /<mount-point>/INSTALL
This is the recommended Skunkware 2000 installation procedure. The INSTALL program will detect which platform you are installing on, (possibly) ask some questions and install all the available packaged files for that platform.

The installation of all the Skunkware 2000 components requires several hundred Megabytes of free space on the partition used by /opt/K/SKUNK2000.

On SCO OpenServer, the custom installed Skunkware 2000 files will reside in /opt/K/SKUNK2000. Therefore to install these in an alternate filesystem,

   # mkdir /u/SKUNK2000
   # ln -s /opt/K/SKUNK2000 /u/SKUNK2000
Setting the appropriate symbolic link up prior to installing Skunkware 2000 can avoid potential serious problems with consuming the root filesystem free disk space and/or inodes.

Further platform-specific installation instructions are available in the Skunkware 2000 Release Notes:

After completing the installation of the Skunkware 2000 components you desire, you may wish to add /usr/local/bin to your PATH and /usr/local/man to your MANPATH. You may also wish to add /usr/local/java to your CLASSPATH. It should not be necessary to add /usr/local/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH as the Skunkware 2000 shared libraries have been built with the appropriate flags.

To query the system about installed Skunkware 2000 packages, issue the command:

   # /etc/custom -p SKUNK2000:default -l

You can also install components graphically by simply invoking the SCO Software Manager:

   # /etc/custom
	 (select the CD-ROM device)

To install an individual package, execute the command:

   # /etc/custom -p SKUNK2000:default:package_name -i -m /dev/rcd0
where "package_name" is the name of the desired component.

For a list of all the custom installable components see the file COMPONENTS.html.

This cdrom is built as a mountable filesystem, and may be mounted to view, use, or install. To mount the cdrom, use the mount(ADM) command with the mount point of your choice.
OpenServer :

    # mount -r /dev/cd0 /mount-point
UnixWare :
    # mount -r -f cdfs /dev/cdrom/cdrom1 /mount-point
