    Hi All,

    I have not seen any reaction here so far. I think the latest release of OpenOffice 3.0 is a great addition to open source. And, I would like to change my present openSuSE 11.0 set up to add this change.

    Are there any recommendations on how to install the presently available OOo_3.0.0_LinuxIntel_install_wJRE_en-US.tar.gz? That is the .rpm package that I downloaded from the OpenOffice site.

    Terminal commands welcome! I would have to replace my present 2.4 install.

    Comments greatly appreciated.

    As I see it the OpenOffice servers are over loaded right now. I'm actually pulling down the .rpm version presntly, but will wait a bit until I see an official repo site to add to my 11.0 set up.

    If you find a repo site please post it. Thanks in advance.

    BTW, I'm not sure what all the differences between the various versions out there are, but 3.0 seems better than what I have. LOL!
    newest, what I can find, is 3.0.0.6.xxx-xxx:
    Index of /factory/repo/oss/suse/i586

    but it is newer (more new) rc (?) to - not official - I tru

    jake45,

    This is starting to drive me crazy!

    I'm running Ooo 2.4 from my openSuSE 11.0 set up. The repository is here:

    URL: Index of /repositories/OpenOffice.org:/STABLE/openSUSE_11.0

    I could not find the OpenOffice reference in the list that you mentioned. I have tried to install the OpenOffice.org .rpm, but it did not up-date Ooo 2.4. In fact, it would not launch where it was installed.

    Basically, I'm confused here.

    Will we find a way to up-date to 3.0? I hope that greater minds than mine jump in here.

    Greater Mind asks: What functionality or feature are you missing in v 2.4 that
    drives you to have such an upgrade to v 3.0 desire?

    Is there something missing in 2.4 that causes you to not be able to (for
    example) write a document for work/school, build a spread sheet, populate and
    mine a data base, draw an artistic masterpiece or impress your boss/professor
    with killer Impress presentation?

    How about a 4 column sort in calc without mutilating the spreadsheet :-)
    [assuming it was implemented, of course]?

    Yes, I works every days with OpenOffice Writer, Impres and Calc too

    Impres in OO 3.x is so much better than in 2.4-version. And Writer support better whit colleaques Ms-products too...

    Thatfor I wait OO 3.x official so soon as possible. Now I works with OO 3.0.0.3.4 (rc3 or 4?)

    Today comes to repo new OO-update 3.0.0.3.5
    Index of /repositories/OpenOffice.org:/UNSTABLE/openSUSE_11.0/i586
    it crashes KDE 4.1.2 more than 3.0.0.3.4

    Why? Why comes not final-version from OO 3.0.0?

    And you have ready OO 3.0.0.6 - incklude 11.1-beta 3

    Index of /factory/repo/oss/suse/i586

    Why not it comes to 11.0?
