    Red face Help in extracting and installing OpenOffice in Centos4


    Hello every one. I am pretty new to Openoffice. I just downloaded open office and I want to install it using documentation from this web page:
    http://www.osresources.com/3_16_en.html but it doesn't work.

    I downloaded it to a directory called "openoffice" see below
    Code:
    /downloads/openoffice
    I "cd" into the directory and issued the following command:
    Code:
    tar xvzpf OOo_2.0.3_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
    But I received the following error:
    Code:
    tar: OOo_2.0.3_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    Can some one help me to install the file please? I would really much appreciate the person's help.
    Thank you.

    Try
    Code:
    $tar zxvf OOo_2.0.3_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
    If that fails, its probably an indication that your package is corrupt and you may have to download it again. The latest OOo version is 2.1.x.
