This tar.gz includes a script which will take an OpenOffice.org distribution tar.gz file and unpack it, then unpack each rpm contained within it, and finally repackage the whole thing as a tar.gz file named OOo.tar.gz.

Usage Steps:

  1. Download OpenOffice.org

  2. Get unrpm-OpenOffice.org2.0.tgz

  3. Place both tar.gz files in the same directory
  4. Run the following command:
    •    tar -zxf unrpm-OpenOffice.org2.0.tar.gz
         cd unrpm
  5. Copy the resulting tar file to your destination directory for your OpenOffice installation

  6. Run the following command:
    •    tar -zxf OOo.tar.gz
    • This will produce 2 directories opt/ and desktop-integration/
