Don’t skip inutoc . !!! (AIX)

I’m not an AIX expert. I’ve only been on an AIX command line probably 3-4 hours at the most in my entire career.

I just know that when you’re installing AIX packages, make sure you run inutoc . I have some notes on AIX here.

Basically, after you copy an ipfl file into a directory, say /tmp, you will need to run the 2 commands like this:

inutoc .
installp -ac -gXY -d. ipfl

Otherwise the install will fail with some message that I can’t remember.
