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.

What patches are on my SCO Unix system?

To see which patches have been loaded, start SCOAdmin Software or custom and pick Software -> Patch Management -> View Loaded Patches

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.
