  1. Cant't install some patches (OSR5.06)

    Hi,

    I finally restored all the system (see post "SCO OSR5.06 box doesn't
    boot anymore" and the /u filesystem on another machine, and it works again.

    I wanted to add some patches (oss648c, oss650a, oss651b).

    during install, it says "component SCO Unix 5.06Ga is corrupt, cannot
    patche".

    How could I verify this ?
    If I'd like to make it correct, what would be the steps to follow ?


    Thank's.

    Possibilities:

    a) It might be corrupt. See my other post where I predicted just that and
    why. fresh install is the only real fix I'd bother with, though it might be
    possible to force install components you already have installed. I've done
    that in desperation a couple times to fix 507 boxes where removing mp4 or
    applying mp4 failed. But I was just forcing a re-apply of mp3 or mp4 or
    gwxlibs or gnutools, not any of the core os components.

    b) Disable hyperthreading on the new machine.
    I tracked failing 5.0.6/5.0.7 installs with known verified good install
    media and known verified good new hardware to failing to uncompress some
    VOL.x.x files correctly.
    By uncompress I mean litterally, the uncompress command, not unpack, untar,
    cpio, etc...
    In the ase of 5.0.7, after MP1 (or later) is applied, then hyperthreading
    can be re-enabled safely, including verified manunally uncompressing the
    same problem file.
    Don't remember if 506 eventually got enough patches to work too.
