When i say rpm -ivh openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm i get the response:
error: Failed dependencies:
openoffice.org-core02 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
openoffice.org-core03 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
openoffice.org-core04 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
openoffice.org-core05 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
openoffice.org-core06 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
openoffice.org-core07 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
openoffice.org-core08 is needed by openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586
But each of these are dependant on openoffice.org-core01.
You are still doing it wrong. Follow the instructions as they are presented in the link above or else everything will keep failing. You need to be in the RPMS directory and enter the entire command as it it is and substituting *redhat* for *mandriva*. That will install all the rpms at once preventing the dependency problem.
[root@God RPMS]# rpm -Uvh * desktop-integration/*mandriva*
desktop-integration: not an rpm package (or package manifest): Is a directory
[root@God RPMS]# rpm -Uvh *desktop-integration/*mandriva*
error: Failed dependencies:
openoffice.org-core01 is needed by openoffice.org-mandriva-menus-2.0.2-3.noarch
all i did to install it wastake the desktop intigration rrpm out of the desktop intigration folder and put it with the rest of the rpms, cd into the directory with the rpms then just do rpmi -i *.rpm and then it do it all. Thats how I did ti with the latest release on mandriva 06
the * acts as a wild card, so any file ending in .rpm in that directory would have been install.
Also on mandriva dont use the rpm -ivh command, use the rpmi -i command as it will automatically download the required dependences for you if they are in the mandriva repos. So for example if you installed gaim from an rpm you downloaded and it needed libfoo but lib foo wasnt there gaim just wouldnt run or be configured, but with the rpmi -i command it will see that it needs libfoo and check the repos for it and download it then install the gaim rpm.
I may be wrong on the above, im pretty sure the rpmi command did that as its just a fancy wrapper for rpm, if you install via the gui by doble clicking the rpm it certaintly does this.
