My system is running Scientific Linux 6.2 64-bit with no office application (OpenOffice or LibreOffice) installed prior to the installation of LibreOffice 3.5. There were no problems or errors reported during the LibreOffice installation.

When I installed the desktop integration, it appears to work in that I can see the applications listed on the Office menu, but there were two mkdir errors as can be seen in the output below. Is there some other package that I should (or should not) have installed prior to the desktop integration?

Where did you get your packages?

Have you checked with Scientific's forums to see if anyone else has reported an installation? Also, I would check Fedora and Centos since both are closely related.

It looks like mkdir tried to create a file not a folder.
