If my memory serves me right this is being caused by the fact that some packages that the patch may apply to are not installed on your system. This is not in itself a problem unless you know you need that package. You then need to locate it either on your install CD's or download it form the Sun website.

Help: I've tried the Sun web site but to no avail and I can't go no further,

I am using patchadd to install 2 patches (107545-03 and 106542-17) to Solaris for Intel, these patches are required for Oracle 8.1.6.  I keep getting the following message:

Checking installed patches...
One or more patch packages included in
107545-03 are not installed on this system.

I assume that I am missing some required packages but the release notes for the patches do not mention this, how can I determine what's missing and hence what I need to do to overcome this?

Many thanks for any help or lnks to any usefull web sites,

Dave Leach
