|| ||Mon, 25 Aug 2008 15:14:41 +0200|
I? happy to announce that the first OpenOffice.org 3.0 beta packages are
available in the Build Service OpenOffice.org:UNSTABLE project.
The package version is 188.8.131.52. It is based on the upstream ooo300-m3
Call for testing:
We kindly ask any interested beta testers to try the package and report bugs
into bugzilla.novell.com, see below for more details.
Note that the package is still a beta version and might include even serious
bugs. Therefore it is not intended for data-critical usage. A good practice
is to archive any important data before using it, ...
Where to get it:
The list of installation repositories can be found at
There are some problems with the version update on older distributions. You
might need to select the right version by hand, see
The packages with localizations are renamed from OpenOffice_org-<lang> to
OpenOffice_org-l10n-<lang>. Also the localized help content is split into the
optional OpenOffice_org-help-<lang> packages. Finally, the American
localization is split into extra packages OpenOffice_org-l10n-en-US and
We are sorry, the 64-bit packages are not available for SLED10 and
openSUSE-10.2. You could install the 32-bit (i586) packages there.
We hope to solve the build problems within the following weeks.
Please report the bugs into https://bugzilla.novell.com/ for the
product "OpenOffice_org 2.0". Do not forget to mention enough information
about the problem, see http://en.opensuse.org/Bugs:OOo.
