NAME
     installer - Solaris Web Start installer utility

SYNOPSIS
     installer [-locales list] [-nodisplay] [-noconsole] [-debug]

DESCRIPTION
     The installer utility invokes a  Web  Start  install  wizard
     sequence which will lead the user through a sequence of ins-
     tallation panels. This installer utility is  found  on  many
     CDs that are shipped with Solaris and it will be found among
     the top level files of these CDs.

     When the installer is on a CD being accessed from a  desktop
     file  manager,  the installer can be double clicked to start
     the installation sequence. If the user is not currently  the
     system's   root   user,  the  root  user  password  will  be
     requested.

     The installer utility  can  also  be  run  from  other  UNIX
     scripts.  Usually,  a script is used in conjunction with the
     utility's -nodisplay option.  Add the -noconsole option  for
     non-interactive scripts.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -locales list   Selects product  translations  for  install,
                     corresponding   to  the  specified  list  of
                     locales if the specified locale translations
                     are   present  on  the  installation  media.
                     Locales are supplied  in  a  comma-separated
                     list following the -locales option. An exam-
                     ple list would appear as follows:


                     installer -locales fr,de,it


                     This would install  products  with  transla-
                     tions  for  the  French, German, and Italian
                     locales.



     -nodisplay      Runs the install without  a  graphical  user
                     interface.  Use  the default product install
                     unless  it  was  modified  by  the  -locales
                     options.



     -noconsole      Run the install without any interactive text
                     console  device.  Useful  when  paired  with
                     -nodisplay for non-interactive  UNIX  script
                     use.



     -debug          Outputs extra  information  about  what  the
                     install  is  doing. Mainly for install diag-
                     nostic purposes.



FILES
     /var/sadm/install/logs          location of installation log
                                     files
