I want to update to go-oo 3.2 as soon as the repo is updated. But I want to ask pinoc if the getopenoffice script makes changes to synaptics settings other than changing the repo site.
I mainly want to download the files & have them ready to apply to the new 2010.iso. I get slow d/l for the OO repo, so I would like to d/l them now at my leisure then when 2010.new arrives I'll have OO ready to install.
So---if I set synaptics to leave installed rpm's in the cache will the getopenoffice script alter that setting? My gut feeling is that it will let it be, but I want to check.
Tx for all your attention to getopenoffice. It is a big help!
the repo is now synced and you can use getopenoffice to update to the fixed version 3.2.
If you set Synaptic to keep all packages then all your new OO-rpms will be kept under /var/cache/apt/archives/.
If you set Synaptic to delete all packages after installation then getopenoffice will detect this and offer you the option to keep the downloaded rpms for later.General remark and only for those having already updated to or installed the previous buggy OO3.2
a) run getopenoffice and select to "completely remove OO".
b) empty the Synaptic cache to avoid reinstalling the buggy rpms!
c) run getopenoffice and install OO3.2
Note: if you run a non en-US localized system then the current getopenoffice 1.5 can not remove OO unless you are going back to a en-US localization. Getopenoffice 1.6 will fix this bug and be available today/tomorrow.
