    Hey I just downloaded the .rpm binary, and I don't know what to do.  Do I have to install all of the .rpms?  I hope not because that could take a while.  How do I install this?  Thank you

      This explains how to install the rpms http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/ch-rpm-install.html,

      unfortunately i am not at a machine at the moment that i can download on, but there should be one master rpm which will install the rest, give it a shot if you can with the above as help, if not please post again and i will give you instructions when i can.

      Regards,
      Daniel

      Daniel,  Thank you for the link.  However my problem isn't how to install RPMs in general, but this batch that I downloaded for oxygenoffice professional.  The download gave me around 40 rpms, and I don't know if I have to install each one or not.  I'm using Opensuse, and Yast will often times let me install one rpm, and then give me an error message for subsequent ones saying another program in accessing some database.  So this means I have to install between every rpm, which would be crazy if I have to do so here.  Thanks again.

        Hi!

        You can install it easily with *.rpm argument.
        rpm -ivh *.rpm in the unpacked directory should do the trick.

      Also, what are all of these rpms?  I see core and then a series of numbers, java filter, xsltfilter.. what do they all do?

      Alright, so when I do it that way I end up with dependency errors.  Trying to install base-2.2.0 ... gets me a message saying I need core01 first.  Trying to install core01 tells me I need all the other cores.  I'll copy and paste what I got.

      Any help?
      P.S.  an edit to my last post about my problems with Yast... Every time I install an RPM I have to reboot the computer.  I accidentally typed "install" instead of reboot last time.  Which makes far less sense.

      So I guess I can't use this software then?

      The problem with me doing that are the dependency errors I mentioned previously.  Am I missing something?

      Why don't you try version 2.3?

      rpm -ivh *.rpm in the unpacked directory was the troubleshooter.

      I may install all of them w/O problems....

      But now....how may I run the  OxygenOffice Professional, when i use the direct access icon on the menu, it runs the default installed previously, on my mandriva spring 2007.1.

      The older version might conflict with OxygenOffice. I have experience under debian based system - I am using Ubuntu in these day.

      I realize this thread is very old, but for others that are searching, from Shane's output, it doesn't look like the 'rpm -ihv *.rpm' was actually run, rather the output in the post shows attempts to install one at a time.  I've used rpm -ihv *.rpm  method successfully.

      If you have a distribution with yum, you can also cd to the directory where you've uncompressed the rpm files and run yum localinstall * --nogpgcheck
