    I reviewed all logs and FAQ but still not sure what I have to do regarding
    those errors, especially 5 and 15!
    Can some one help on this.

    Error 5 is defined in the /usr/sbin/patchadd script as a pkgadd error.
    What this means is that your permissions are messed up and/or you've got
    a bad patch download. I'll bet anything that one of the things you're
    seeing is something like "cannot open: /var/tmp/##########", which is
    definitely a permissions issue.

    The directory that the patch is in must be word readable/writable -
    install the patch(es) from /tmp or /var/tmp. If you're trying to install
    patches from an NFS mount, you should have anon=0 in the mount options
    so that root will be authenticated properly.

    Someone else may have pointed this out, but I'll repeat it just to be
    sure: All the patch error codes are in the /usr/sbin/patchadd script.
    Look there for the meanings - the error codes of the script do not
    necessarily equate to OS error codes (and usually don't).
