Thread: Safest/cleanest way to upgrade to LibreOffice 5.0?

  1. #1

    Default Safest/cleanest way to upgrade to LibreOffice 5.0?

    I want to upgrade to the new LibreOffice 5.0, but I'm currently using the LibreOffice that was installed by default with openSUSE 13.2 (64bit). Since this is a stable version of openSUSE, it will never upgrade to 5.0. Is there a "proper" way to upgrade? Which repos do i use?

    LibreOffice:Factory always gets the latest version, see here: https://en.opensuse.org/LibreOffice

    The version in Factory now is RC5, not yet the final release. I would
    imagine that there will be a new repository created on the lines
    of /repositories/LibreOffice:/5.0 for the new release; previous similar
    ones exist for 4.4, 4.3, etc.

    When can we expect to get LibreOffice 5.0 in a repository alongside 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4?

    On second thoughts, having just checked the download version numbers
    from the LibreOffice site, what looks like RC5 in factory *may* be the
    final version.

    No idea.
    Maybe when 5.1.0 is released? There's no need to have it before that...

    It is 5.0.0.5, the same version you get when you click on the 5.0.0 download link at the LibreOffice homepage.

    A newer version does not exist yet.

    As you are using Tumbleweed, you'll get LibreOffice 5.0 via the standard repo anyway in a few days.
    It has been submitted already, and currently is in review/testing.

    Thank you, so do I add that repo and then do a "switch all to..." to use that repo for LibreOffice? or just add the repo and choose to upgrade some other way?

    Yes.

    It should also work to manually upgrade some package (libreoffice e.g.), the rest should be switched automatically then because of the dependencies.
    But the former is safer.
