Solaris 10 1/13 patchset released and latest Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs
By Gerry Haskins on Mar 22, 2013
Posting updated June 6, 2013, with new Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs 150400-xx (SPARC) and 150401-xx (x86):
As usual, we've released a patchset of all the patches contained in Solaris 10 1/13 (Update 11):
This patchset can be applied to any existing Solaris 10 system to bring all pre-existing packages up to the same software level as Solaris 10 1/13.
It is not the same as upgrading to Solaris 10 1/13 (available here), as upgrading will additionally install any new packages delivered in the Update.
I've also updated my Solaris 10 Kernel PatchID sequence posting with the latest Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs, namely:
- The Solaris 10 1/13 Kernel patch, 147147-26 (SPARC) / 147148-26 (x86)
- Post Solaris 10 1/13 Kernel patches have the PatchIDs 148888-xx (SPARC) / 148889-xx (x86)
Please note that there are no more planned updates to Solaris 10, so these latest Kernel PatchIDs - 148888-xx (SPARC) / 148889-xx (x86) - will continue to be used for the foreseeable future.
Murphy's Law strikes again!
No sooner had I written that Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs 148888-xx (SPARC) and 148889-xx (x86) were here to stay for the foreseeable future, than the integration of the SR-IOV feature into rev-04 of these patches made it prudent to rejuvenate them.
So from July 2013, the Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs will change to be 150400-xx (SPARC) and 150401-xx (x86).
Dare I tempt fate again by saying these Solaris 10 PatchIDs are likely to remain the same for the foreseeable future ?
