It is always useful to read the install guide before installing. Here are a few handy (no deep thoughts here ;) tips that the 8.1.6 Install Guide had:

  1. Use the latest kernel patch from Sun Microsystems. Sun provides patch information at: http://sunsolve.sun.com
  2. Solaris 2.6 requires at least kernel jumbo patch revision #105181-15 for successful installation of Release 2 (8.1.6). See Table 112, "Solaris 2.6 Patches for JRE 1.1.8_10" and Table 113, "Solaris 7 Patches for JRE 1.1.8_10" on page 1-13 for patches required on Solaris for the JRE.
  3. The Oracle8i release, which this manual accompanies, includes patches that must be applied to Oracle8i or other products. Patches can be found on the Oracle8i Release 2 (8.1.6) CD-ROM in the cd_rom_mount_point/patch directory. Review the README file included with each patch for installation instructions.
