Pinned topic How to create and install relocatable packages on AIX?
Is there anyone who has successfully created and install an relocatable packages on AIX(5.3 or above)?
I found that the information about how to create and install a relocatable package on AIX is so little and confused.
Could any one kindly provide specific steps to describe the processing of create relocatable packages and install relocatable packages on non-default directory on AIX?
Because I am not very familiar with AIX, it is excellent to give a specific example.
(B.T.W, using backup and bffcreate tool should be excellent)
Thanks a lot in advance!
