For openoffice go to http://projecs.imp.ch/openoffice/ and install it as a package. I have it running now. Note, there is an error in instructions. Instead of running 'openoffice' after the install, presuming you put the .tgz file in /usr/local and do the pkg_add on the file and it installs OK, then you need to do: /usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/program/soffice instead. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ see it is soffice instead of openoffice to get started. Also, it asks for a name of a directory to install in and I shortened that long part marked with ^^^^^^ above during the install and then set that /usr/local/openoffice/program in my path and it works just fine. As for combining your filesystems, it is not quite trivial though the process is fairly straightforward if they happen to be adjacent and contiguous. Last week there was a whole series of postings on that issue in the Email list. But, you would probably be better off just moving some stuff such as /usr/ports and /usr/local in to /home and making symlinks to them. Tar up /usr/ports cd /usr tar cvf /home/ports.tar ports Unroll it in /home cd /home tar xvf ports.tar mv ports usr.ports (I like to use this naming convention you can name this as you please) Make the symlink cd /usr mv ports ports.orig (little safety, don't nuke it until checking) ln -s /home/usr.ports ports Check it all out by CDing to /usr/ports and looking at stuff. It should now put you in to /home/usr.ports/ when you do cd /usr/ports Clean up cd /usr rm -r ports.orig cd /home rm ports.tar Do the same (except for names) for /usr/local and possibly /usr/share if gets large and even /usr/src if you feel the need. Some of these steps can be combined, but this strung out procedure makes me feel more secure than piping tar to tar and such. ////jerry _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
