Default pkg inside non-global zone?

How do I install a package in a non-global zone? The same command which works in the base install seems to fail when I zlogin and then run the command.

The -G option to pkgadd:

Quote:
Add package(s) in the current zone only.
When used in the global zone, the package is
added to the global zone only and is not
propagated to any existing or yet-to-be-
created non-global zone. When used in a
non-global zone, the package(s) are added to
the non-global zone only.

This option causes package installation to
fail if, in the pkginfo file for a package,
SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES is set to true. See
pkginfo(4).
If you show the actual command you're running and the output it would probably help more.

man pkgadd

It depends on the package, where it wants to install

i.e. installation directory

SunFreeware
/usr/local

BlastWave
/opt/CSW/

Colab (subversion packages)
/opt

Code:
pkgadd -d <package name>
is the standard way for both non-global and global...

Sparse Root Zone
shared (read only) from global (by default)
/usr
/lib
/sbin

If you provide more details, I will try to help more.
