dupatch "single-user mode only" problem 4.0f

Sorry if this has been covered before, but every time I click search i only get "could not log on"...

Anyway, I am attempting to install c++ on a 4.0f (pk7) system. Prerequisites include OSFPGMR440 which is not installed. I tried to install OSFPGMR440, but setld instructed me to first use dupatch to remove patch 00105, install the subset, then re-apply the patch.

I performed the following:
# shutdown -h now
>>> boot -fl s
... system up in single user mode ...
%/sbin/bcheckrc
%/sbin/update
%/sbin/swapon -a

When I run dupatch -delete ....
it tells me "operation can be performed in single-user mode only"

What am I missing here? I'm at the console in single-user mode, but dupatch doesn't think I'm in single-user mode. So much for a quick easy install of c++.

Will c++ work without OSFPGMRxxx? We don't seem to need it for standard cc.

Thanks

OSFPGMR is the "Software Development Environment", i think that must be installed to work.

I may seems the same thing, but instead of bootin on single user, try shutdown to single user, or init s, to see if dupatch still complaints about the runlevel.

Vernon,

I've seen this problem before. I don't remember which command does it but the system is no longer at init level s.

Before you run dupatch type in the command:
# init s
to get it back to init level s again.

Use the who -r command to see the actual runlevel.

% init s
prior to running dupatch solved this. Thanks.

"who -r" did not produce any output at the % prompt.
