Dependency problems with OpenOffice.org 2.0 in MDV 2006 Free


I've just downloaded and extracted the tarball for OOo for linux i586.
I get three dirs created: readmes, RPMS, license.

The readme's are general help when you've got the program working, and asking me to join mailing lists. The licenses are what they say they are.

In RPMS, there is a list of RPM files, and a dir called 'desktop integration':

Code:
desktop-integration/                     
jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.rpm              
openoffice.org-base-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm    
openoffice.org-calc-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core02-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core03-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core03u-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core04-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core04u-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm 
openoffice.org-core05-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core05u-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core06-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm 
openoffice.org-core07-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core08-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core09-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core10-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-draw-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-emailmerge-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-gnome-integration-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-graphicfilter-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-impress-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-javafilter-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-math-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-pyuno-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-spellcheck-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-testtool-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-writer-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-xsltfilter-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm
When i say rpm -ivh openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm i get the response:
Code:
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.

What am i doing wrong?

Aha! I'd wondered the contents of that dir did. now it seems so obvious!

Though i still get dependency errors:

Code:
[root@God desktop-integration]# rpm -Uvh *mandriva*
error: Failed dependencies:
        openoffice.org-core01 is needed by openoffice.org-mandriva-menus-2.0.2-3.noarch
openoffice.org-core01-2.0.2-5.i586.rpm is definitely in RPMS/ though.

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.

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

Sorry thats an error on my part. You can do
Code:
#rpm -Uvh *.rpm desktop-integration/*mandriva*
I have fixed the other post. Hope it works out this time.

I did wonder about the period, though i figured that *rpm was just more inclusive than *.rpm

Michael Aust's method seems to have worked, though. Which i wasn't expecting.

Its amounts to the same thing whether there is a period or not. For some reason, I always include the dot when I am running commands that affect files with a particular extension.

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.

I have a question for the OP,
why didn't you just use the disro defaulted install of open office?
you wouldn't have had the dependancy problem.

urpmi open-office and it would have installed the open office from the cdrom if not already installed.

Mandriva 2006 has OOo 1.x.

no if i remember correctly rpmi does work

there is an openoffice 2.0 in the contrib repos its called opeenoffice 2.0go or soemthing. But when yougo the the help section and bout it shows it as a beta version the 1.9.9 or what ever.

I personealy prefer to use one direct from openoffice.org and install it that. Then I knwo it hasnt had part removed from it. Like the way fedora removed java elements from 1.x
