Installing Tar.Gz


Hey

I recently downloaded OpenOffice 2 to update the Openoffice 1 that came with the linux that I installed (CentOS). I am having difficulty installing the tar.gz file. I did 'tar -xzvf' and all the content went into the directory. Then I cd the folder with all the content..

[ronnie@ool-45720158 ~]$ cd OOB680_m5_native_packed-1_en-US.9011
[ronnie@ool-45720158 OOB680_m5_native_packed-1_en-US.9011]$

Everything seems okay there but when i did
./configure
make
su
make install

I got this message

[ronnie@ool-45720158 OOB680_m5_native_packed-1_en-US.9011]$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
[ronnie@ool-45720158 OOB680_m5_native_packed-1_en-US.9011]$ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
[ronnie@ool-45720158 OOB680_m5_native_packed-1_en-US.9011]$ su

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
[root@ool-45720158 OOB680_m5_native_packed-1_en-US.9011]# make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

The newest openoffice is rpm based, so there is no need of the ./configure&&make&&make install procedure. In fact, even in the previous versions there was a graphical installer to do the job and not compiling from source.
Anyway go to the directory you extracted the tar.gz and follow these instructions.

Regards
