I wanna install LSOF in AIX.

I've download the program from https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/pick.do?source=aixbp&lang=en_US.

after I unzip the tar file, I don't get readme or installation guide file.

This is the first time I use Unix operation system, can you help to solve my problem ?

I was able to make this happen. Here is what I did:

[:/home/jfarnswo/installer/lsof_aix61_4.77] $ installp -l -d .

What files do you see?

If it's something like

Change_log.txt
lsof.base
lsof.license
lsof.man.en_US

then I think you need to run installp.

Try something like

installp -l -d .
installp -a -c -d .

(assuming you are in the unzipped lsof directory, otherwise change the period/dot symbol to the name of the directory that you unzipped it to)

It's been a long time since I used AIX, so please check if I am right. Documentation is available by running "man installp", or by visiting this link. http://www.regatta.cmc.msu.ru/doc/usr/share/man/info/ru_RU/a_doc_lib/cmds/aixcmds3/installp.htm
