FIXME - add some native packaging goodness foo here I guess.
When everything has finished building; you should get some happy looking message. The easiest way to install is:
bin/ooinstall -l <path-to-install-to>
I often use
If you are a packager, you'll want to run
which honours DESTDIR & does other packager-like things.
Note: The '-l' to ooinstall runs a linkoo on the installed result.
Installing more than one version
This is useful for regression testing, cautious upgrading, etc.
- open WINDOWS START MENU -> RUN ...
- insert the path and file to the setup OR browse to the location
- add at the end (behind the setup.exe) " /a" and click OK
- the setup program start
- select the location where you want to install OpenOffice.org
- start the OpenOffice.org the directory where you have install it.
When you install the OpenOffice.org with the option /a then you have NO systemintegration. (no start menu entries and no file association)
- open new shell
- change to the directory where all the rpm packages are. (f.e.
- f.e. you want to install the office into the directory
/home/user1/office then insert
rpm -vh --install --dbpath /home/user1/office/.rpm --nodeps --prefix /home/user1/office/ openoffice*.rpm
after the rpm installation you can start the office from the path /home/user1/office/program/soffice When you install the office in this way you have no systemintegration (no start menu entries and no file association)
After you have done this do the following:
Open the file bootstraprc(Linux)/bootstrap.ini(windows) in a editor. Change the line UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/.staroffice_english
or any other directory you want.
