I've spent the past 3 or 4 hours trying to get StarOffice to install nicely on my computer. Long story short is that I had an older version of SO8, I downloaded a patch, patch says SO8 isn't installed. Why? Because I did something along the lines of rpm2tgz because the installer is broken.

Does anyone know of a way to get the damned patch to see that SO is in fact installed? I have version 8.0.8-9221 installed and want to patch it to 8.0.9-9238. I can do it by hand, but it's such a pain that I don't want to do this for each update.

Thanks

I've never tried to get StarOffice installed as OpenOffice has all the same capabilities and compiles native or you could install openoffice-bin if you don't want to compile it yourself.

Is there something specific StarOffice has that you need?

Have a look at my overlay, the staroffice ebuild in there (based off this one iirc) does just this. Perhaps you have to modify the ebuild a little before you can use it, it uses staroffice-8.0.6 as base version and updates to 8.0.9.
