Question Unable to Install LibreOffice in CentOs 6.2


Hello All,

I'm trying to install libre office in CentOs 6.2 but when i'm running "yum install Libreoffice" command i get the above message,

"Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: centos.aol.in
* epel: ftp.cuhk.edu.hk
* extras: centos.01link.hk
* updates: centos.01link.hk
Setting up Install Process
No package libreoffice available.
Error: Nothing to do"

I have downloaded LibreOffice from it's offical website but it's RPM's and i dont have idea that which Rpm will be used to install LibreOffice.

Kindly help me.

http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?nodetect

Download the version for your distribution and install it using the package manager.
Something like this:
Code:
yum install something.i586.rpm

Not a help:

@linuxlover.chaitanya: did he not just say that yum could not find LibraOffice?

@gemmajid: have you tried something like "yum search office" to see what returns? I am finding OpenOffice.Org but not LibraOffice. It appears to NOT be in the repository.

Dont you see what did I write? I asked him to download the LibreOffice from the website and then install the rpm using yum. Whats wrong in using yum for installing rpm files instead of rpm command itself? I would suggest you read the complete post rather than just the quoted text.

gemmajid,

If you have downloaded the rpm package from this website: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?nodetect mentioned by chaitanya, or from whichever link you downloaded, then you can run this command to install the package if it is rpm package as I can see you have mentioned in your first post that you have downloaded rpm package from the official website:

Code:
# rpm -ivh <package_name>

gemmajid,

As I told you that you can download the updated and latest version from the link provided to you by chaitanya in post no. 2.
This time what command you exectuted? And what errors are you getting? Post the command you used this time and errors also.
