The following instructions describe how to install XACT5.0 PC product
where the PC has PC-NFS access to workstation hard disks and the
workstation has a CD-ROM drive.
The recommended way to do this is to create a copy of the
CD PC product and install files onto a workstation hard drive
that is accessible by the PC by PC-NFS, and then run the install
program from the PC.
NOTE: The the current install program will not recognize the PC files
on the CD when accessing a SUN CD directly from the PC.
1. Properly mount the CD on the SUN CD drive.
2. Copy the necessary data onto a SUN hard drive that is accessible
by the PC:
2.1 Create a directory on the disk where you will create a CD "image",
and a subdirectory named "pc1", eg
where <path> is an existing path on theWS drive, and "cdimage" is a
name chosen by the user
2.2 Copy the top level files from the CD into the "cdimage", eg
cp -p /cdrom/* /<path>/<cdimage>
2.3 Copy the CD pc1 hierarchy from into the WS disk pc1 directory
using the cd_copy. program.
Using the cd_copy. program will prevent file name case changes, etc.
that would happen otherwise by the WS or PC-NFS.
/cdrom/sn2/install/cd_copy. -r /cdrom/pc1 /<path>/<cdimage>/pc1
NOTE: It will take about 75MB to copy all the PC data. You
could do partial copies, eg
/cdrom/sn2/install/cd_copy. -r /cdrom/pc1/ds380 /<path>/
3.0 Install the products you want from the PC
3.1 On the PC, mount the WS drive, e.g.
net use n: \<path>\<cdimage>\
3.2 Go to the mounted drive and run the install.exe program:
