    64 Bit Install failure

      When trying to install on my main machine, (an AMD64 with 1gig memory, and SuSe/Novell 10.0 in 64 bit mode), I get an error (A0022 - I think). The download works fine and the unpacking goes well. It is when I try to run the Setup program that I get the error, immediately.

      I checked permissions, and set to "777"

      I am running Java 1.5 on the system, would that be the problem? If so, is there a fix?

      Know the download was okay because it installed on my 32bit machine.

          I have the same problem. Suse 10 64 bit and I get the error message below:

          All files have been successfully unpacked.
          Running installer
          Attach to native process failed
          linux:/home/wayne/downloads # java -version
          java version "1.5.0_06"
          Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-b05)
          Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_06-b05, mixed mode)

          I am running Java v5 so I don't know what to try next.

          Have anyone successfully installed Staroffice 8 on Suse 10 64 bit??

          Thank You

            So I guess the lack of response can mean that Staroffice 8 is not capable of running on 64bit Linux. Good to know. I'll spend money elsewhere in the future!

              the unpacked installer contains RPMs, on my gentoo-installation some cannot be installed via rpm -i. But installing Staroffice completely manual works. You need the commandline tools tar, rpm2targz and xargs to do so.

              Give the following lines a try, should work also for you.

              cd /var/tmp/unpack_staroffice/RPMS
              ls -1 | xargs -n1 rpm2targz
              cd /
              ls /var/tmp/unpack_staroffice/RPMS/*.gz | xargs -n1 tar -xzf

              Best regards
