Hi. I need help installing the OOo beta on Mandrake. I download the tarbell without a problem, but then when I untar it, it has a folder called RPMS and a whole ton of RPMs, none of which I can install because they have to satisfy something with each other.
ex - I try to do Core01 and it doesn't satisfy Core 07, so I do Core 07 and it wants 01.
I've installed openoffice2 on Ubuntu with alien several times.
In truth the only problem is that I don't work in a setting where I'm likely to use OO and I prefer Abiword and Gnumeric anyway so havent really tested the stability of OO installed this way.
But as a method to install it works fine.
