    Wow... that would before this last round of x86 support from Sun
    (I would think). Not sure if Sun likes to talk about their dirty
    little past. What exactly are you wanting?

    What does "recommended updates for Pentium III systems" mean?

    Are you wanting to know which SPARC system to choose? Which x86
    system to choose?

    I think he's looking for this bundle:


    except minus the bug which causes the LX50 system and other
    Pentium III systems to crash unless one a priori adds
    "set cmi_no_init=1" to /etc/system.

    I added that line to /etc/system I got error message variable not
    defined when booting.
    Even I tried what suggested from other thread to add that line also
    to /etc/system (set cpu\.genric:gcpu_legacy_cpu_support=1)

    I got error message there is no cpu.genric variable in module
    gcpu_legacy_cpu_support

    If you spelled it "genric" rather than "generic" I can understand why
    you got the error message!

    I downloaded it all updates without any care to the recommended ones
    listed in http://sunsolve.sun.com/pdownload.do?
    target=10_x86_Recommended.zip>
    and found no crashe happened . When I added that sentence to /etc/
    system :

    set cmi_no_init=1

    I got an error message :
    variable cmi_no_init not found in the kernel .

    Any suggesstions ?

    Add this to your /etc/system file:

    set cpu\.generic:gcpu_legacy_cpu_support=1

    I got an error message :
    Variable "gcpu_legacy_cpu_support " is not defined in "cpu.generic"
    module :

    Here it is my /etc/system file :
    ------------------------------------------


    *ident "@(#)system 1.18 97/06/27 SMI" /* SVR4 1.5 */
    *
    * SYSTEM SPECIFICATION FILE
    *

    * moddir:
    *
    * Set the search path for modules. This has a format similar to the
    * csh path variable. If the module isn't found in the first directory
    * it tries the second and so on. The default is /kernel /usr/kernel
    *
    * Example:
    * moddir: /kernel /usr/kernel /other/modules



    * root device and root filesystem configuration:
    *
    * The following may be used to override the defaults provided by
    * the boot program:
    *
    * rootfs: Set the filesystem type of the root.
    *
    * rootdev: Set the root device. This should be a fully
    * expanded physical pathname. The default is the
    * physical pathname of the device where the boot
    * program resides. The physical pathname is
    * highly platform and configuration dependent.
    *
    * Example:
    * rootfs:ufs
    * rootdev:/sbus@1,f8000000/esp@0,800000/sd@3,0:a
    *
    * (Swap device configuration should be specified in /etc/vfstab.)



    * exclude:
    *
    * Modules appearing in the moddir path which are NOT to be loaded,
    * even if referenced. Note that `exclude' accepts either a module
    name,
    * or a filename which includes the directory.
    *
    * Examples:
    * exclude: win
    * exclude: sys/shmsys



    * forceload:
    *
    * Cause these modules to be loaded at boot time, (just before mounting
    * the root filesystem) rather than at first reference. Note that
    * forceload expects a filename which includes the directory. Also
    * note that loading a module does not necessarily imply that it will
    * be installed.
    *
    * Example:
    * forceload: drv/foo



    * set:
    *
    * Set an integer variable in the kernel or a module to a new value.
    * This facility should be used with caution. See system(4).
    *
    * Examples:
    *
    * To set variables in 'unix':
    *
    * set nautopush=32
    * set maxusers=40
    *
    * To set a variable named 'debug' in the module named 'test_module'
    *
    * set test_module:debug = 0x13
    set cpu\.generic:gcpu_legacy_cpu_support=1
    *set cmi_no_init=1

    By the way I do not have any service plan in Sun . Any way to download
    those patches without buying service plan ?

    Just run ./pca -i missingrs and drink a cup of coffee.
    To see from the list of missing patches it will take a while.
    All patches you saw in that list are free.
    Patch your system (or wait for U6)

    What about Recommended Solaris patch clusters . May they help to avoid

    If you just google a little of your time you will find the outstanding
    quality of the pca utility. It's quit famous. Patch clusters are for
    people with contracts afaik.

    You have to add a few options to pca in order to get any patches,
    your username and password created when you downloaded the OS image
    and the path to wget if /usr/sfw/bin is not in your PATH.

    pca --user=dhoogendijk --passwd=password --wget=/usr/sfw/bin/wget -i

    Not for me. I always have used a pca.conf file with these options in it.
    Saves a lot of typing ;-)

    Why create an extra file? Just alias pca in your shell's rc file :->

    But both concepts are completely over the head of the OP, which is why
    I expressed it the way that I did.

    You must have done something weird with this patchdiag.xref file. Please
    remove it ("rm /var/tmp/patchdiag.xref") and re-run pca. It will
    download the file on its own.

    If the problem persists, please send output of "./pca --debug" to me
    personally (not to this group).
