This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating
systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS,
or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open
There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on
this site: Search this site is the best
way to find anything.
To see which patches have been loaded, start SCOAdmin Software
custom and pick Software -> Patch Management -> View
Checking the list of patches which have been applied may be more
of a problem; there is no simple way of doing this with SCOAdmin.
You can pick Software -> Examine -> Applied Patches, and then
pick each component in turn to see what patches have been applied
to it. Yes, SCO is aware that this is a pain, so hopefully there
will be a better way in a future release.
If you are running OSR5.0.0 with the rs500d release supplement
applied, or OSR5.0.2 or later, there is a command-line method,
customquery listpatches, which will list what patches
have been applied. This option to customquery did not exist prior
to rs500d; if you do not have rs500d
applied to your system, you should.
