how to install SFW*** pkg ?


there is an SFWxmms package on CCD and I want to install it.But when cd into the directory containing the package and run "pkgadd -d SFWxmms" ,it complain:
Code:
bash-3.00# pkgadd -d SFWxmms pkgadd: ERROR: no packages were found in </cdrom/s10_software_companion/components/i386/Packages/SFWxmms>
Then I cd into the SFWxmms and try again:
Code:
bash-3.00# pkgadd -d SFWxmms pkgadd: ERROR: attempt to process datastream failed     - open of <SFWxmms> failed, errno=2 pkgadd: ERROR: could not process datastream from <SFWxmms>
at last cd into the perent directory of SFWxmms package and try once again:
Code:
bash-3.00# cd .. /../bash-3.00# pkgadd -d SFWxmms pkgadd: ERROR: attempt to process datastream failed     - open of <SFWxmms> failed, errno=2 pkgadd: ERROR: could not process datastream from <SFWxmms>
Code:
bash-3.00# ls SFWaalib       SFWfile        SFWguile       SFWpcre        SFWtdmp SFWaconf       SFWfltk        SFWgviz        SFWpftpd       SFWter SFWafio        SFWfnlib       SFWhpijs       SFWpine        SFWtetex SFWamake       SFWfppd        SFWimap        SFWplotu       SFWtnef SFWamnda       SFWftchm       SFWimlib       SFWpnm2p       SFWtop SFWasclk       SFWfttse       SFWispel       SFWprcml       SFWungif SFWastep       SFWfvwm        SFWjoe         SFWpy          SFWunwin SFWbdb         SFWgawk        SFWkde         SFWqt          SFWuudv SFWbison       SFWgbin        SFWkoff        SFWrline       SFWvim SFWblue        SFWgcal        SFWlibsane     SFWrpm         SFWvnc SFWbrl         SFWgcc2        SFWlpcap       SFWrsync       SFWvorbt SFWcddk        SFWgcc2l       SFWltool       SFWruby        SFWw3 SFWcdrtl       SFWgcc34       SFWlxrun       SFWrxvt        SFWwine SFWcprnt       SFWgcc34l      SFWlynx        SFWsampc       SFWwmkr SFWctags       SFWgcmn        SFWmpack       SFWsane        SFWxaw3d SFWcups        SFWgd          SFWmpage       SFWscrn        SFWxcpus SFWcurl        SFWgdb         SFWmpeg        SFWscrnbrltty  SFWxdelta SFWcvs         SFWgfile       SFWmpg12       SFWsdic        SFWxfce SFWdb1         SFWgfind       SFWmphp        SFWsdl         SFWxmacs SFWddd         SFWgimp        SFWmpydb       SFWsed         SFWxmcd SFWdiffu       SFWgkrel       SFWmutt        SFWsgrep       SFWxmms SFWemacs       SFWglob        SFWmyjdb       SFWshar        SFWxpdf SFWenscr       SFWgm4         SFWncur        SFWshutl       SFWxpp SFWespgs       SFWgmake       SFWnmap        SFWslang       SFWxterm SFWespk        SFWgplot       SFWnmh         SFWslrn        SFWyasr SFWespks       SFWgprnt       SFWnpbm        SFWsnort SFWethrl       SFWgroff       SFWoggl        SFWsquid SFWexpct       SFWgtext       SFWoldap       SFWsudo SFWffltr       SFWgtxt        SFWoslp        SFWtclx

A Solaris (SVR4) package can be either a single file (package datastream) or a directory. One can convert from one form to the other with the command pkgtrans.

If your package is in the single file form, the command to install it is:
Code:
# pkgadd -d PACKAGEname
If the package is in the deployed form, go into its parent directory and run:
Code:
# pkgadd -d . PACKAGEname

Try This

Try pkgadd <pkgname> without the -d. I forget the details, but depending on the type of package, you have to treat them differently.

??

Not using -d has nothing to do with the package format, "man pkgadd" for details.
