Crossover Office Anger and Frustration


Ok, I've used Crossover for about a year now.

It's worked like a charm until now.

Last nite I attempted to instal Office 2000 on my fresh installation of Crossover and 2 day old Slackware - Current installation.

When it started the installation the DCOM 95 installation started, then it popped up an error message saying it couldn't find a disk with enough space available. WTF? I'm installing it in my /home/ directory. /home has 60 gigs free.

So I uninstalled CX and reinstalled, took another stab at it. Same result.

Installed CX in /opt as root and tried to configure as user and got the same result.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Serious suggestions pertaining to my problem. No "use Abiword" or "Open Office" please.

I use OpenOffice and KOffice already when it suits me.

Hi,

Don't quote me on this, but i believe the installer needs atleast 150MB of free space.

Feel free to correct me if I'am wrong.
