A First Look at OpenOffice.org 2.0 - page 2
I actually wrote this article entirely in the beta (1.9.65) version that is considered a pre-production release (the official 2.0) version. Click on the "snapshot (preview) build" link on the OpenOffice.org download page for the latest beta version.
These versions are updated regularly and can be downloaded from the "snapshot (preview) build" link on the main OOo download page. You'll get a tar.gz file that was unzipped (use your tar.gz file name) with the following command:
root# tar -xvzf OOo_1.9.m65_native_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
Here's the command structure I used to install the various modules:
root# rpm -Uhv openofficeorg-core-1.9.65-1.i586.rpm
I was pleased that all the RPMs loaded without a glitch, even considering that I was on SUSE 8.2 Linux and my ancient laptop.
The size of the download has grown slightly since version 1.0, going to 95 MB for Linux, 91 MB for Solaris x86, and 78 MB for the Windows version. Of course there's the obligatory disclaimer to read because it's beta.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
