Angry Star Office 8 shell script

I just downloaded the shell script from Star Office * from Sun Downlaod center, I placed it in a folder called Download. What do I have to do to get it to install Star Office 8 on my Suse system?

According to the website, you can get RPMs directly from Sun... why would you want to go through the pain of shell script or compiling source you don't need to?

If you are going for the trial or you bought it, either way you should be able to get straight RPMs. And as a student(if you are) you would get the full version free. Soyou should just be able to install the RPMs you get directly from Sun with YAST and be up and running in under a minute.

The current directory isn't included in PATH. So you need to prepend ./ before the script name to execute it from the shell. I am guessing that this script will install the software over the net, but I might be wrong.


Another way is to execute is like:
