Unhappy openoffice 2 install errors...


I uninstalled my last version of OOo and am trying to upgrade to OOo2. I ran rpm -Uvh *.rpm as well as many other variations, but I keep getting this error.

error: openoffice.org-core04u-2.0.1-1.i586.rpm cannot be installed
error: openoffice.org-core06-2.0.1-1.i586.rpm cannot be installed

Any help would be appreciated. I'm running suse 9.0 pro.

You can't (and don't want to) upgrade if you removed the old version... You want to use

rpm -i

to install...

okay... So you are root user and you are using rpm -i ?

Is that the full error? Do you have disk space?

Seems odd...
