    Java and OpenOffice with Backtrack2


    I am running Backtrack 2, and I am having a hard time getting the Java plugin to work with Mozilla, and I cannot install open office. This is the error I get for the open office installation:

    bt RPMS # rpm -Uvih *rpm

    You need to install Slackware packages (tgz) and not rpm on Backtrack since its based on Slackware.
