 Download and installation instructions

To download and install the kit:

  1. Log in as root or change to the root account on the system where the component is to be installed.

  2. Back up your system disk before installing any software (refer to your system documentation).

  3. Create a scratch directory to receive the downloaded kit tar file, and change to that directory. You can download all component tar files to, and install from, the same directory.

  4. Download the kit tar file, DTL210.tar.gz, to your scratch directory.

  5. Uncompress and unpack the downloaded tar file:
       # gunzip -dc DTL210.tar.gz | tar xvf - 
    This creates a directory named Spike in your scratch directory. This directory has a kit subdirectory which contains the subsets to install, and a doc subdirectory which contains the release notes.

  6. Read the release notes prior to installing the kit.

  7. Install the new kit from the kit subdirectory:
       # /usr/sbin/setld -l Spike/kit
  8. When finished installing, you can delete the scratch directory.
