Installing SO8 Evaluation Package in Xandros

Postby drjoewebb » Thu Jan 10, 2008 4:21 pm

Greetings to all from Rhode Island, USA

I am a Xandros user, and attempted to install the evaluation pack of StarOffice 8 onto my system. I got some help on the Xandros forum where I was able to get the shell script to open and decompress all of the rpms. I then got the rpm's to install, but for some reason Writer did not. Everything else functions okay.

Below is the log of Xandros' install --- any advice would be appreciated.

For some reason, Writer has just "shown up" and works fine. I can't explain it-- perhaps a rebooting process at some time fixed the issue. All of SO8's elements are working just fine now.

I just installed Update 9 to my StarOffice Evaluation using the method described and it worked just fine ... 2&method=h

The update comes as a .zip file. Download, extract, find the RPMS directory, open Xandros Networks, "File" "Install RPM file", find the directory with the rpm files (directory name is RPMS), highlight all of the files, and off you go. Takes about 10 minutes for the whole process.
