So it is a rpm based installation? If yes ,How can i achieve it in slackware?
I think it's not...
You know Slackware doesn't support rpm package, which means you have to use the official package or make the tgz package yourself.
If you want to install OOo, I suggest you to use Slackbuilds which
contain a lot of packages and is so powerful!
All you really need to do is extract the rpms and then you can run it directly, usually however, you may want to install it. So probably the easiest way is to install a premade package or make one yourself using makepkg. To extract rpms you can run either 'rpm2tgz' on them or:
for i in *.rpm
rpm2cpio $i | cpio -id --quiet
I, too, recommend OOo SlackBuild for viewing powerpoint files. As an alternative you could install MS Powerpoint or MS Powerpoint Viewer (the latter being free) using WINE. SlackBuilds.org has a WINE SlackBuild you can use. I actually have both MS Office and OOo installed since not all native MS files are 100% compatible with OOo.
