Cannot install SlackBuild OpenOffice.org 3.2.0 on Slackware 13
 
I have downloaded the source package and the slackbuild package for OpenOffice 3.2.0.

Everything seems to go well until doinst, then I get error messages about zero length files:

Code:

Slackware package /tmp/openoffice.org-3.2.0_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz created.

I have tried searching for this problem, but cannot find anything that helps.

Ignore them, many sources contain zero length files. It created the package in /tmp.

I'm not sure about those zero length file warnings, but a package has been created, so as root run:
Quote:

installpkg /tmp/openoffice.org-3.2.0_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz.
And hope for the best. :)

Beaten by a faster typer again! Will you all slow down, please? :)

Or use pkgtool and point to /tmp.

D'OH!!! So simple...

Thanks chaps! It installed with no problems.

Strange there was no install instructions though. I did look, but maybe I missed them.

Five years of working as a Technical Writer in the IT industry and I still fail to RTFM... :o
