How do I install OpenOffice.org on other UNIX systems?
From Apache OpenOffice Wiki
If you have a UNIX distribution that does not have an up-to-date rpm or you are unsure that you system is current and rpm installation is failing, then try the following:
- Use the --nodeps flag to install a rpm without having dependent packages in the rpm database.
- Get and use rpm2cpio to convert the rpm files to cpio archives and then employ cpio to install the software. There is a perl version of rpm2cpio at http://www.iagora.com/~espel/rpm2cpio that should be portable.
- Install any language packs.
