Having tried lomanager one more time with Version 3.4.1-2 I can
confirm I cannot get an install of LibreOffice via lomanager on
a 2 GB USB version of PCLinuxOS 2011.06. All I've posted previously applies.
Archie comes closest to having read my stuff and understood where
I'm coming from in his post #11.
My post#9 answers anything directed to utu up to and including
You may all cease helping me for the present. Thanks a lot.
Hi there utu, I came across a similar "lack of space' or what ever problem, setting up a EeePC 701 (4 Gb) with Kde (which I had to trim a bit). Lomanager logically failed due to lack of space. I found out it was possible however to install LO anyway from a Memstick (manual install). Maybe, maybe, you could try the same?
Texstar ever posted a instruction about how to do a manual install i.e. on a "other PC":
Instructions to install the LibreOffice packages on a different PC:
1) On the new PC: if an older LibreOffice version is installed run lomanager and choose: Completely remove LibreOffice.
2) Copy the directory '/tmp/LO-rpms' from the old PC to the user's Home directory on the new PC.
3) Make sure Synaptic is NOT running.
4) Open a terminal in the user's Home directory on the new PC and enter (copy/paste) the following command:
su -c 'LO-rpms ./LO_OfflineInstall.sh'
You see, you got to download the rpm's of course using lomanager on a other PC and choose keep the rpm's.
A little bit of thinkering and .....
