Thanks for the tip, it worked. :-) I hadn't thought of looking in Factory
for a stable package.
I agree that OOo is a *big* package, but putting the 32bit on the x86_64
installation DVD? I'm not sure I can find any logic in that.
Now I'm down to a handful of 32bit packages, but they can't removed until
acroread or realplayer go 64bit. ;-)
Thanks again and regard,
