Saving space in /var from Patch Clusters

If you are sure you'll never want to uninstall a patch, touch this file:

/var/adm/sw/patch/PATCH_NOSAVE

You mayhave to create /var/adm/sw/patch as well.

This prevents swinstall from saving the superceded files in /var, which can save you a ton of space.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
