    Default Crossover Office Installation

    Is it possible to create a package to install Crossover Office correctly without having to do manual installation of other packages? A simple script or a rpm package would suffice. I mean how can get a process going to simplify things for those who do not have the capacity or do not wish to use command line. Let's face it, Crossover Office is used for a lot more than games. There are real reason why a corporate customer would want to run certain windows applications. I simply like to play games, though.

    Code:
    sudo zypper install http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
    
    sudo zypper install libcapi20-3-32bit fontconfig-32bit libgphoto2-6-32bit libgsm1-32bit liblcms2-2-32bit libopenal1-32bit libOSMesa9-32bit sane-backends-32bit libXcomposite1-32bit libXinerama1-32bit libxslt1-32bit libXxf86vm1-32bit libgnutls28-32bit
    
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgnutls.so.28.30.6 /usr/lib/libgnutls.so

    Read this recent Forum post and see if the script I created works for you.
    Script may require some slight modification since that post was about installing on Tumbleweed.

    Hi
    If codeweavers would support, then they could add a requires section in their rpm spec file for openSUSE to pull them in all would be good, eg;
    Code:
    %if 0%{?suse_version}
    Requires: libfreetype6-32bit
    Requires: ....
    etc
    %endif
    Else you could create a ymp file (pattern).
