    Adding Packages


    I recently bought r.h 8. I installed it (through many crashes) and finally settled down. I started adding all the packages that I didn't install in the installation. It works until it starts to install open office. It will never install, i tried it in gnome and kde, nothing worked. It always comes up w/ "Unknown Error". Please help a guy that got a 60 gb hdd today so i can FINALY dual boot.

    Where in the process does this error show up? Are you completely sure that it just says "Unknown Error" without the possibility of getting more information? Although it does go in line with all these things that redhat have done lately (I'm beginning to dislike them more and more), it's so "un-unix" that it's still hard for me to believe it.

    well, i fixed it. LOL. I just poped in the cd and instead of going through the menu i just opened up the package itself, and it worked. Thankyou though!

    Can you really fix something if it's never broken?
