I am a newbie. How do you do this? Yast setting, manually download and install? Thanks.

My understanding was it was pulled because it is such a huge package it
wouldn't fit on the DVD9, so they only included the i586 version. You
can get the x86_64 rpms from Factory repository. It does need x86_64
java, i.e. java-1.5.0-sun x86_64. HTH

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,
