Here's another routine I am suggesting for the Konsole challenged users 

1. Download the distro and help files and language pack (if needed).
2. Right click on the .tar.gz and choose extract here
3. You can put/move ALL the .rpms that you need in one file folder then 
do a Ctrl-A (this means choose all); right-click and choose the regular 
MDV software installer. This will install all of the files.

NOTE: if you have previously installed LibreOffice, you should uninstall 
ALL LibreOffice related files BEFORE install the FINAL version. ALSO 
NOTE that the RC4 version is the same as the FINAL version. To do this 
go to the Mandriva Control Centre (MCC), Add/Remove Software (packages); 
put LibreOffice in the search window and remove all of the files it 

ALSO NOTE: if you would like to install the clip art from the 
OpenClipart.org project, you can install: 
libreoffice-openclipart-3-1pclos2010.noarch.rpm and it will install all 
of the cliparts into the right LibreOffice folders. You can find the 
file here:
