Dear All

On this months coverdisc there is the beta version of OOo2 - which I am keen to try.

I dont know how to install multple .rpm's through YAST (I use SuSE 9.2 pro) so I do the old rpm -Uhv *.rpm once I have cd'd to the directory.

I get an error re some kind of dependancy related to Red Hat. Are the RPM's purely for Red Hat systems or am I just being a fool again? Confused

Many thanks.

Gordon

The RPMs are supposed to be generic. What is the error? If you can find and install the SUSE package that provides whatever it is asking for, you should be able to install the RPMs by adding ---nodeps to the rpm conmmandline.

From my last two installs of OOO 1.9xx it includes a couple of small disto-dependant rpms which set your menu structure up for KDE/Gnome.
The package names will include "suse" or "redhat" (or whatever distros they've gota round to doing this for). You just need to move that particular rpm into another directory then your "pm -Uhv *.rpm" will be fine (*)
Although the last set of OOo rpms I d/loaded didn't have the redhat ones (mumble grumble, my problem not yours)

Alternatively Suse 9.3 comes with a nice OOo 2.0(!) so just upgrade to the latest and you'll be smiling.

(*) assuming you've got the RPMs on your harddrive rather than on a CD/DVD - alternatively copy the non-distro-specific RPMs into a safe place from the CD to your HD and "pm -Uhv *.rpm"

Basically you copy all the rpms on your harddrive and delete all the ones you don't need for example red hat. You then can install via rpm. The instructions can be found here:

multiple RPMs that depend on each other should be installed as such

rpm -uvh *.rpm *.rpm * rpm

and so on

It's -Uvh (or -Uhv) not -uvh, and you only need one *.rpm on the command line.

yeah thats what I meant, the small U was a typo.

"and you only need one *.rpm"
some installations must be performed with multiple entries like the redhat update manager 'up2date' has to be installed with 2 rpms at the same time. otherwise it throws up dependancy errors

(I was calling the guest a cock btw Smile

who is that with the abusive chinese scripts ?

*.rpm will add all RPM files to the command line, there's no point in adding the same files multiple times.

The Chinese scripts are links to dodgy Chinese sites.
