I am coming late to this thread, but this talk of a "single-button"
install scares me. I take the downloaded Linux binary LO package and
re-package it into a Slackware Linux installation package. I use a
script I created to do this and all I have to do when a new LO release
comes out is to change the version and run the script. Out comes a
Slackware package, ready for installation. I surely hope that any
effort going to a single-point installer for LO, which would probably
break my process, will not be the only way to install LO in the future,
and the current installation scheme will still be an option.
What I have seen with Linux "one-click" installers is they actually
invoke the distro software installer. This requires user confirmation
before the install occurs (password entry). So it is as secure as any
other package installation. The "one-click" installers are normally
distro (distro family) specific.
Currently I have two versions of LO installed, one from the repository
and a downloaded version.
