Trying to install Open Office 1.1.4
I downloaded the file OOo_1.1.4_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz from
When i installed the package with ./setup, I received the following

What does this mean?
Thank you for your help
I'm having to send this from Windows hell, but I can't do anything in
my Linux environment.
I can log in, but every time I issue a command, I get told that it's
not found. For instance, when I ran startx, it couldn't find the
command. When I ran ls, it couldn't find the command. I even tried
entering a path to the command, like /usr/bin/ls and /bin/ls, but to
Yesterday, I did a couple of things on the computer and don't know if
that had anything to do with my problem.
First, I wanted to install my krecipes program which I retrieved via
svn. When I tried to do that, I got told that for the present kde
used unsermake instead of the gnu make utility. So, I installed
unsermake and then did the "export PATH" thing to be able to use
unsermake from where it was insalled. No perceivable problems after
Then, I did a yum update which installed a number of new KDE packages
from the updates-released repository.
Today, I added a program which I installed via tarball and edited my
.bash profile to make the permanent addition to my path. Then, I
rebooted and now, no commands will work.
Any ideas what is going on here and what I have to do to fix it?
I have seen this strange behavior on both FC3 and FC4 whereby on
restarting a session the default screen background does not get
painted and the context menu is no longer available. It is as if the
session has not fully initialized. I am looking for some explanation
or some clues on how to chase down the problem.

I am trying to figure out the optimal way of installing FC3 (NOT FC4),
which is now ~7months old, and there have been plenty of upgrades.
Is there any more efficient way than:
1. installing FC3 with the _original_ ISO images
2. doing a massive update?
I am trying to eliminate step #2..
I wonder, for example, are there ISO images which contain all the
upgrades and bug fixes for the past 7 months?
Any pointer to such ISOs would be helpful.
Or, alternatively... how hard it is to create them for myself from the
One possible answer to the problem would be; why not install FC4?
I am hesitant, as i have a couple of other computers with FC3
/up-to-date/, and would like to maintain full consistency between them.
Also, i guess FC4 does not only contain all the updates & bug fixes
from FC3, but also implements many new things, some potentially

This helped. Of course, I had to put a couple of other 'bin''s in
there, like /usr/sbin and /bin to get vi to work so that I could edit
the .bash_profile file. However, I'm back up and running again.
Thanks again! :-)
I'm new to Linux and need a little help installing ndiswrapper. I've
installed FC4 on my desktop and downloaded updates with Up2date. I have
been unable to get my linksys WMP54Gv.4 wireless card recognized by the
network wizard. I have downloaded ndiswrapper in order to install the
windows xp driver for the card, but am having trouble following all the
install instructions on the ndiswrapper
I used the
ln -s /usr/src/linux-<kernel-version> /lib/modules/VERSION/build command
to build a link to the source, inserting '2.6.11-1.1396_FC4' as the
The next step went o.k.-'make distclean' in the ndiswrapper-1.2
directory, but the 'make' command produced a 'no link' error. Sure
enough, upon clicking the /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/build and
source files it said there was no link.
How do I find out if I have the source. If not, how do I get it?
What is 'the source'. Why wouldn't it have been installed with FC4?
Patrick, I just went down this road....

I found that this was already done. You need the proper headers for your
kernel, and the proper package to install is kernel-devel-<kernel-version>.

I'm not surprised because that step cleans up from any previous builds.

Try 'yum install kernel-devel' to set this up. You might not get this
source because you don't strictly need it until you start doing, well, just
what you are trying to do. It might or might not be installed depending on
the kind of installation you did for FC4. The various HOWTO's you might
find can easily mislead you because the name of the correct package for the
kernel source has changed from time to time. An older HOWTO might have you
looking for the wrong source package.
You will need the correct Windows driver for ndiswrapper to use, it will be
a .INF file. There is a list of known-good drivers on the ndiswrapper
Installation wiki. Before you begin building, make sure you have the
correct driver at hand, say on a USB disk. You need this because after
building ndiswrapper, you still need to load the Windows driver before
things will work. The driver I needed came packaged in a Windows EXE -- no
way to extract the files under Fedora!
I found that I had to follow the steps for iwconfig to set up my card and
had to use dhclient to get my IP address and DNS settings.
You might find it convenient to print the installation instructions from the
wiki before you get started as well.
Good luck. Erik
