Question Open Office Org 3.0.1 RPM Install Errors


Hi,

I'm trying to install Open Office .Org RPMs on Zenwalk Linux 5.2 and, since Zenwalk doesn't come with the "rpm" command, I had to install it from a community repo package. When I run the installation, it just wizzes through it and at the end it claims that there were errors in the installation. When I check the details, it all seems to stem from the JRE installation which seems to think I don't have coreutils installed:

error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/basename is needed by jre-1.6.0_11-fcs
/bin/cat is needed by jre-1.6.0_11-fcs

This seems to happen with other software as well when Java engines are involved. I had it recently with a Java-based accounting tool. In my case 'sed' was missing, and the Java app was looking for it in /usr/local/bin. I had it actually in my /usr/bin directory, so I made a softlink for it, but even that didn't solve the situation for me.

With OpenOffice it should be easier. In your case I would ignore the RPM package, and rather install the tarball version. And even there you should have the option to ignore the Java-related parts (most of OpenOffice can do without, I guess).

Anyway, if someone comes up with a universal explanation why Java engines play so difficult, that would be nice.
