Hi Mark, Thanks for your advice and URL. I agree with you that installing OOo1.1 from its tarball is quite simple and straghtwards. I just want to know whether in Rome I have to do the Roman way. Now I have OOo1.1 downloaded but could not discover 'md5sum' # which md5sum # whereis # locate md5sum /usr/X11R6/bin/gst-md5sum /usr/X11R6/man/man1/gst-md5sum.1.gz /usr/local/share/python2.3/Tools/scripts/md5sum.py # gst-md5sum en-ooodict-GB-1.2.tgz INFO ( 1334: 0) Initializing GStreamer Core Library version 0.6.4 INFO ( 1334: 0) CPU features: (0000068c) MMX 3DNOW INFO ( 1334: 0) registry: loaded user_registry in 0.002156 seconds (/root/.gstreamer/registry.xml) INFO ( 1334: 0) registry: loaded global_registry in 3.725240 seconds (/usr/X11R6/share/gnome/cache/gstreamer-0.6/registry.xml) unknown: 2 error: parse error, unexpected $undefined, expecting '(' ** (process:1334): WARNING **: pipeline could not be constructed: Invalid syntax # man gst-md5sum does not provide much information. Is it 'gst-md5sum' same as 'md5sum' Kindly advise. TIA B.R.
