StarOffice 5.0 on Debian
I have tried thus far a few times to get star office installed on the
'hamm' distribution. The readme file states that the libc6 libraries
are already there. I followed the instructions to verify that the
library files exist on the machine and they do. I ran the ./setup /net
root to eliminate any permission problems and allow for user installs
only to get an error something like, "cannot start X server".
So I started X and ran the ./setup /net from the command window. I saw
a StarOffice screen then the system locked up and had to be shut off
shutdown. Next I tried to install the libraries anyway using the .
and was prompted to force the install. I ran ./setup
from the command line again and the same x server error came up. I did
not start X and try the command line again.
Does anyone use StarOffice and is there something simple that I'm
