And lest you be scared by that (because OOo takes 1000GB of disk space, 12GB of RAM, and 6 days to compile) the SBo SlackBuild is one of the few that repackages the binaries for you via rpm2tgz, so it'll have you officed quickly and easily.

Robby Workman has OpenOffice.org packages (yes, packages) on his homepage.

Wellll if you look at the script, you will find at the end it uses 'makepkg'. You can go to the build directory, delete what you don't need and run makepkg your self.

The package is most likely built in /tmp/SBo/package-openoffice.org

However, I just looked over the package and it's not that simple. Everything is crammed together. maybe in the extracted RPM there are some scripts that can help you determine that..... 433MB is quite large

Thumbs up

Just installed the package from Robby's repository. Great Job, and it sure beats compiling from scratch!

I've used Robby's OOo packages for a long time; his packages are always first rate. I would also highly recommend Eric's packages, first class work.

This is what I use: http://slacky.eu/aadm/pkgs/index.php?ver=13&pkg=392
It's not an OOo package itself, but it downloads the official OOo RPM package for your architecture (64-bit for Slackware64 and 32-bit for Slackware), converts it to a .tgz Slackware package and installs this automatically. The only thing you are requested to do yourself, is to choose your language from a list.

Works extremely well and is the most convenient way to install non-US-English versions of OOo, I found so far.

But I Robby Workman's packages and his SlackBuild script work very well, too. For non-US-English you just have to change the file name specified in the script.

Some time ago, I tried also the package from LinuxPackages.net. I had no problems with it, too. Today I prefer the slacky.eu solution, as my language is not US-English, and because they always include a SlackBuild script (not that I needed that very often; in fact, I used to install a lot of the packages provided by Ken Zalewski on LinuxPackages.net, and never had a problem with them).

No offense intended, but, I would recommend that you do not use anything from that site. There are questions about quality control regarding their packages.
I would use Robby's package or use SBo.
