additional packages install problems..
« on: February 18, 2012, 08:38:27 am »
Although I have used vector linux from quite a while.. (my firts version was soho 5) I can not install the new packages. I have downloaded libre office from the repository but I can not figure out how to install it
Guess I am growing tree-ish :P
By the way, I do not have acces to the net so any live install method is great but useless
Thanks!

You mean you have download libreoffice from the VL repo?
You can use gslapt or slapt-get to install packages in VL.

Since you are not on the wireless, you might just try installing it as root with installpkg?
