    Paranoid install instructions for beginners

    Use 'Add/Remove Software' to locate and remove all traces of your current OpenOffice install.

    Unpack the tarball and go to '/pathtoextractedfile/en-US/RPMS' (or language you downloaded) Remove either 'openoffice.org-gnome-integration-2.3.0-9221.i586.rpm' or 'openoffice.org-kde-integration-2.3.0-9221.i586.rpm' depending on your desktop of choice.

    Just to make sure there were no problems with the Gnome menu I moved 'openoffice.org-freedesktop-menus-2.3-9221.noarch.rpm' and 'openoffice.org-redhat-menus-2.3-9221.rpm' from '/en-US/RPMS/desktop-integration' to '/en-US/RPMS'

    Then I opened a Terminal and cd to the '/en-US/RPMS' directory, and typed:

    su

    Give the root password and then:

    rpm -ivh *.rpm

    Then open up '/etc/yum.conf' (as root) with the text editor and add OpenOffice to the list of excluded updates, like this:

    Code:
    [main]
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    keepcache=0
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    exactarch=1
    obsoletes=1
    gpgcheck=1
    plugins=1
    metadata_expire=1800
    exclude=openoffice.org*

    This release also has a 'Quickstarter' and puts an icon in your Gnome Panel Notification Area.

    To be honest, I don't know. I haven't had a chance to use it yet. It's one of those times though when I didn't want to have just 'bog-standard'

    I used to make a habit of removing the Fedora supplied OpenOffice and install the official version. I kept hearing how they 'crippled' it in some way (Java related stuff?)
