Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I accidently deleted my entire /opt directory and must now replace everything. I have all the disks of sun studio/java studio/java studio creator etc. I have already replaced the lost csw packages (removed from pkg database and reinstalled). However the installer for sun studio will not allow reinstall. It goes throught he entire process without doing anything. There are no permissions errors and the install log returns almost empty.
Thank you, that worked perfectly for all but one of the packages:
I have unregistered/reinstalled all of my packages except the App server and what came with it.

as you can see the App server platform has an extremely odd UUID and no name.
the standard syntax doesn't apply, or at least won't work.
in the gui this error comes up when I try to uninstall
Exception in thread "Thread-4" java.lang.NullPointerException
Is there a way tp directly edit a config file or something? The installer will not allow a new install with those entries still there. perhaps /var/sadm/install/productregistry?
