Installing StarOffice6.0 problem


Hi folks,

Debian testing/unstable (3.0)

I encountered problem on installing StarOffice6.0 from CD

As USER
$ mount /cdrom
$ cd /cdrom/linux/office60/
$ ./setup
bash: ./setup: Permission denied
$ su
Password:
# ./setup
bash: ./setup: Permission denied
ls -al setup
-r-xr-xr-x _ _1 root _ _ root _ _ _ _75172 2002-07-11 21:45 setup

As ROOT
the same result
bash: ./setup: Permission denied

Kindly advise. _TIA

B.R.

I'm not quite sure why you're getting that problem, but try copying the contents of the cdrom into a single directory on your hard drive, make the file setup executable (I use a file manager to do this, but chmod will also do), then run the install. By the way, do you want single user, or a network-type install? If the latter, run setup with the -net switch.

Thanks for your advice.
