slackware-current: rpm2tgz screwing up


I am trying to rpm2tgz openoffice rpm-balls. The packages generated by rpm2tgz is all within the range of 150kbyte. Installpkg fine accept that it installs nothing. Anyway for me to find out what's wrong?

Make sure you have rpm2cpio and cpio installed. Or try the program called 'disrpm' instead. It uses hexdump. Then use makepkg to create a package, but be sure to create and include a valid slack-desc file -otherwise pkgtool and removepkg will not be able to uninstall the package correctly.

don't forget to remove the previous version before you try to install the new version. I use rpm2tgz and it worked fine for me

Thanks. CPIO wasn't installed. That was the problem.
