OOo comes as a set of .rpms You don't compile it.

After you untar, go into the new directory and you will find a folder named "RPMS". In this folder run " rpm -1 *.rpm" and it will install.

Sorry-----

rpm -i *.rpm (that's the letter "i"---run in the folder with all the .rpm files)

Look at "man rpm" -i is the switch for "install"

However cryptic they may be, it always pays to check the man pages when you get an error message.

I've seen a lot of illiterates running around here--native English speakers who never learned their own language.
Hammam is obviously not a native speaker, but nonetheless communicates quite clearly. He is also obviously struggling with some basics, so I think some patience might be good.

When I run the rpm in /opt/<foldername>/RPMS, it puts a folder in /opt named "openoffice.org2.0" In there is a folder name program. In that folder are the various start scripts.

In that folder, type ./soffice and it will start with no windoe open. ./swriter will start with a text window---etc.

It probably depends on the desktop environment you're using, but you may be able to right-click on the desktop and select "New shortcut" or something similar. There'll be a box where you'll have to put in what command is used to run it and you'll probably need to put the full path to that executable there.

Also, please try to use more descriptive thread titles in future.

There is some intreguing stuff about installing in general as well as open office here.

You need to learn about YaST and SUSE repositories.

To use YaST - look for it in the menues.
