Installing OpenOffice problem


Hi folks,

FreeBSD 5.2

I encountered following problem on installing OOo

OOo_1.1.1.RC3_FreeBSD52Intel_install.tbz
was download to /usr/home/user/Download

$ cd /usr/home/user/Download/
checked md5 OK

$ ls -al
...
-rw-r--r-- 1 user wheel 73105915 Apr 17 18:11 OOo_1.1.1.RC3_FreeBSD52Intel_install.tbz
....

$ su -
password

# pkg_add OOo_1.1.1.RC3_FreeBSD52Intel_install.tbz
pkg_add: can't stat package file 'OOo_1.1.1.RC3_FreeBSD52Intel_install.tbz'

Kindly advise what mistake I have committed.

TIA

B.R.

just compile from ports or install the package for freebsd (http://projects.imp.ch/openoffice/).
If you choose the url above you need perl 8 , atk and orbit installed.

Hi mrcheeks,

Tks for your advice.

I made a mistake. I should 'su' without '-/ing' then it worked. But I am running on a slow machine (AMD K-6/350). It took a while with following pop-up

# pkg_add OOo_1.1.1.RC3_FreeBSD52Intel_install.tbz
pkg_add: could not find package ORBit-0.5.17_2 !

Now another problem comes on installing RRBit-0.5.17_2
as follow;

# cd /usr/ports/
# make clean (first)

The PC is now running for more than 8 hrs. coming to
....
biology/platon
Cleaning .....

Shall I close the Kconsole window OR let it to run.

TIA

B.R.
