After extracting the datastream package file from the gzip'ed file (mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg.gz), Solaris "pkgchk" reports the following errors:

[root@heoc-cir]/home/mdalton# gunzip mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg.gz
[root@heoc-cir]/home/mdalton# pkgchk -d mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg all
Checking uninstalled stream format package <mysql> from </opt/home/mdalton/mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg>
## Checking control scripts.
## Checking package objects.
ERROR: /var/tmp/aaaS5a46A/mysql/reloc/mysql/mysql-test/extra/rpl_tests/rpl_row_001.test

    file cksum <22700> expected <53940> actual
## Checking is complete.

Attempting to "patchadd" this package, anyway, yields a partially installed package:

[ verifying class <none> ]
ERROR: content verification of </opt/mysql/mysql/mysql-test/extra/rpl_tests/rpl_row_001.test> failed
    file size <1909> expected <5810> actual
    file cksum <22700> expected <53940> actual
## Executing postinstall script.

To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:

/opt/mysql/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/opt/mysql/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h heoc-cir password 'new-password'

Alternatively you can run:

which will also give you the option of removing the test
databases and anonymous user created by default.  This is
strongly recommended for production servers.

See the manual for more instructions.

Please report any problems with the /opt/mysql/mysql/scripts/mysqlbug script!

Installation of <mysql> partially failed.

How to repeat:
1. gunzip mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg.gz

2  pkgchk -d mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg all

3. pkgadd -d mysql-5.5.18-solaris10-sparc-64bit.pkg all

Suggested fix:
Verify the contents of "rpl_tests" directory tree and correct the pkgmap file.

I meant to say "pkgadd" rather than "patchadd".  My bad!

Please, check if the same problem still happens with a newer version, 5.5.20.
