labview install errors
Hey there. I'm trying to install labview into ubuntu by following instructions I found here http://ubuntuforums.org/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=39
My problem is that I forgot to put the command --scripts while I was running an rpm file through alien, so I got this:
finley@squid:~/LV8pkg$ sudo alien -k labview85-core-8.5-1.i386.rpm
Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package labview85-core: postinst postrm prerm
Warning: Use the --scripts parameter to include the scripts.
so then i tried this:
finley@squid:~/LV8pkg$ sudo alien -k --scripts labview85-core-8.5-1.i386.rpm
mkdir: cannot create directory `labview85-core-8.5': File exists
unable to mkdir labview85-core-8.5: at /usr/share/perl5/Alien/Package.pm line 257.
So basically I need to fix this problem without completely killing my previous efforts and my computer. Any ideas?

Easiest thing is just to start over and delete that folder.
