Open Office


I am trying to install office on my fresh slack 12.2 using pkgtool. Getting not enough disk space.

My partitions are
hda1 swap 5 gigs
hda2 / 15 gigs
hda3 /home 38 gigs.

I have already installed:

Realplayer
Audacity
Flash player
ntfs-driver

intend to reinstall kaffiene.


Does OpenOffice require that much more disk space?

Start a terminal session and type
Code:
df -h
and post the output to this thread.

You definitely have enough room, so something else is going on here. Did you download a .tgz? If so have you tried installing it manually from commandline yourself?

Code:
installpkg [packagename].tgz

no i have't. I thought pkgtool is the best way to go as it's approved by slackware slacky.eu repository...

might give it a try
