uwin-base - base UWIN binary installation sear
uwin-base [ options ] [ name[=value] ... ] package release version
binary installataion sears
for 32 and 64 bit uwin-base
is a self-extracting archive windows executable. See
for details on sear generation and execution. uwin-base
sears are generated with --command=phase1.sh
which means the
controls the installation. Only sear
member files that have changed since the last installation are updated, so installing a sear over a previous
installation may take much less time than the initial installation.
NOTE!!! uwin-base is a required UWIN package and must be installed first for the initial UWIN install
and subsequent updates. Installing uwin-base kills all UWIN processes. Make sure all UWIN related processing
for all users is complete before executing the sear.
Option operands to the sear executable are ratz(1) options.
Operands after any options are name[=value] passed to phase1.sh. If authorize or defaults
are specified then the installation is non-interactive, otherwise a typical windows point and click installation
dialogue is entered. The operand -- must separate any name[=value] operands from the package
phase1.sh collects the name[=value] operands and executes in a temporary UWIN environment that is
distinct from any other UWIN instance. phase1 stops all other UWIN instances, and upacks the sear into
the new UWIN instance. It then passes control to phase2 which executes in the new UWIN instance and re-starts
the UWIN master service.
Files currently open or in use by any process in windows (e.g., .dll and .exe files) cannot be modified
in any way. The phase1 => phase2 dance ensures that UWIN installation files are not in use by any
other UWIN processes.
