Package Installation Do's and Don'ts

An important note from Gerry Haskins: Do not apply packages from one Update onto a system installed with a different Update.

Cherry picking packages from a newer Solaris 10 update and installing them on a system running an older update will result in an unsupported configuration and likely lead to system corruption.

Note also that adding a package from the same update means that you will have to re-apply all the patches already on the system to bring the new package to the same level as the rest of the system.
