Error description

  • When using geninstall to install an ifix that does not
    exist in the specified source, either a misleading
    message
    is displayed, if none of the specified ifixes exist in
    the
    source, or the missing ifixes are not reported, if one or
    more valid ifixes are provided.
    
    Example 1:
    # ls /mnt/ifixes
    good_ifix.epkg.Z
    # geninstall -d /mnt/ifixes E:missing_ifix
    
    0503-003 geninstall:  The specified device /mnt/ifixes
            is not a valid device or file.
    
    Example 2:
    # geninstall -d /mnt/ifixes E:missing_ifix E:good_ifix
    [The good_ifix is installed, but the missing ifix is not
    mentioned at all.]
    # echo $?
    0
