PostPosted: Mon 25 Feb 2008, 18:18    Post_subject:  How to build an OpenOffice.org2.3.sfs file in your langauge  

Edited (file extension of Slackware package was wrong).

Hi All,

Here I describe my success of building a localized OpenOffice sfs file.

Steps:

1. Download an official .tgz (Slackware) packaged and localized OpenOffice file.

2. Place the file into a new folder in your root folder and unpack it. I did that into a directory named "ooo". The best way is to open a terminal window in the "ooo" directory and run the "gunzip -c <here comes the file name> | tar -xvf-" command.

3. Now you should see a directory called "install" in /root/ooo.

4. In this directory there is a script called doinst.sh which creates symlinks to various places. I modified it to create symlinks to the unpacked files in /root/ooo. I attached the modified script:
Run it in terminal.

5. Now the almost last step left to do. Open a terminal window in /root and run the "mksquashfs ooo /mnt/home/OpenOfficeOrg2_3.sfs" command to create your new sfs file in /mnt/home (I packaged also the "install" directory, maybe it can be excluded).

6. When it's done open the "bootmanager" utility and choose the new sfs file.

7.Reboot

Good luck,

Matu

I think this may be vey useful for me to making sfs fle from next OpenOffice version:

2 questions:

- first question =I must put the OpenOffice slacware package (tbz or tgz?) in root on linux filesystem? I cant put this file on a fat partition?

- second question = I must replace doinst.sh with your script attached?

Hi Dingo,

I did all the above described things in the /root (not /mnt/home) of my mounted pup_save.2fs (I think it is ext2). First I tried on fat32 (because I had more space there to do) too, but the unpacking and the symlink creation were failed on it (permission problems). So I suggest to do that on an ext2 partition. You can modify the script to create symlinks to the appropriate libraries and places.

About the package. I used the .tgz packaged OpenOffice. I never even tried with the other one.

Finally you can use the modified script without replacing the original one. I just described, where I found it.

Best,
Matu

I just checked the sizes again.The unpacked archive is about 370Mb, while the compressed one (hungarian version) is 142Mb. So a bit larger pup_save file would be better. Mine is 1Gb.

Matu

Some notes I forgot to mention:

1. Of course you can remove the OpenOffice tgz archive from "ooo" after unpacking.
2. Maybe you should manually create (or edit the script) symlinks to swriter, scalc and simpress to /root/ooo/usr/bin from /root/ooo/opt/openoffice.org2.3/program (I didn't do that, because I had them before).

Dingo - in case you aren't still watching the thread at http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=177440#177440 - you might want to read my last post before you go and make a huge pup_save file.
