Open Office Install Problem (OT)


This guy must be kidding... I don't believe he is serious. Someone who has been using Linux for 8 years couldn't make this kind of questions.


//Moderator.note: this thread contains the fat that remains after performing liposuction on http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=795807. While making OT remarks is not a direct violation of the LQ Rules excessive use of it will impact the good atmosphere we believe is necessary. This goes of course for the OP as well as for anyone who replies. 15 percent fat is stretching it, hence the liposuction. This thread remains closed as it serves no purpose anymore.

I'd unsubscribe, but I have a bet on how far this thread will go.

Sorry to join the party late and hijack the thread - but does Slackware support RPM's?

Geez, as old as Slackware is, you'd expect it to spin 78s!

Geez, first there's no Open Office in Slackware, and now you're telling me that it doesn't support 78s!

Yes.

Installing RPMs directly, however, is risky because they aren't packaged for Slackware.

When I booted up my Slackware DVD, I waited for ages, then when the film started it was disappointing. Blue and green rectangles with writing on them? I was expecting more action. What kind of director is he - this Volkerding guy?
