See, this is what happens when you return to a problem after sleeping on
it :-) I took a second look at things and I realized the smart and
obvious thing to do would be to find what zipfiles have the 'setup' and
'program/soffice' scripts that were broken and just fix those and then
see how things went.
Well it turns out things go very smoothly, almost like you're installing
on a real linux system. So I removed all the silly workarounds and the
wrapper. Only thing that tends to go wrong during install are some bad
symlinks but those get corrected. Please note that you still need to
have a procfs (-o linux doesn't matter) mounted otherwise you'll get a
I've tested this thing about a dozen times over on -current and 3.3
(redhat 8.0 and 6.2p6). If the install seems to hang like when
'registering uno component' start over. I've only seen it once and can't
reproduce that problem but it seems a few other people have seen it.
Looking in the openoffice/programs/setup.log may give you some clues.
I noticed when you run the setup it spits out some problems about not
