Installing glibc



Although you can upgrade your entire Linux installation to include the required libraries, you can also install the libraries in a way that minimizes any changes to the rest of your system. That is useful if you just want to try out StarOffice on a given machine and uninstall it at a later date. Below we describe how to install the libraries to minimize changes to the rest of your Linux installation.


To install glibc from the StarOffice CD:


  • Change directory into the directory containing the glibc2 libraries:


cd /cdrom/linux/misc/glibc2


If you downloaded StarOffice rather than purchasing the CD, you also will need to download the glibc libraries from the StarOffice FTP server (see Resources).
