Talking OpenOffice 2.0beta, running well but need install a Native Language Module


Recently I installed OO 2.0beta using
rpm2tgz *.rpm
pkgtool (saying yes to almost all the packages)

Im using KDE and OO runs well on it. Now I need to install my native language module, but the OOo_1.9.109_LinuxIntel_langpack_*.sh package it seems to install only RPMs.

Somebody knows how to extract the RPMs that come with the *.sh packages?

1) I wrote a SlackBuild script for properly rebuilding the OOo 2.0 Beta packages into proper Slackware format. It can be found here:

(Unzip & untar the file to get the SlackBuild script + the various slack-desc files also required, put the OOo 2.0 Beta *.tar.gz file in the same directory and run the script as root, and proper Slackware packages will be left in /tmp for you.)

2) Assuming the Spanish language pack works the same as the others:
mkdir /tmp/ooo-langpack
tail -n +`cat $FILE | egrep --binary-files=text "linenum=" | sed s/linenum=//` $FILE | gunzip | (cd /tmp/ooo-langpack; tar xvf -)
cd /tmp/ooo-langpack

#This line is optional
rename -1.i586 -i586-1 *
