Summary: Installation path does not match projects standard path
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: OpenOffice.org
AssignedTo: eward@xxxxxxxxxx

Hi all,
this is not an openoffice specific problem, also other packages are affected,
but OO is a good example. And it applies to all SuSE-versions
Fact: SuSE installs OO in /var/lib/somewhere, but openoffice.org installs in
/opt/openoffice.
Problem: Upgrades to newer releases are merely impossible. By installing the
package from openoffice.org, the settings of SuSE-OO are lost, programs are not
found and so on. The SuSE-OO has usually one or two month delay, and this is a
problem if one is waiting for some bugfixes in the new release (as I do for
calc).
If SuSE sticks to the projects installation path, this problem can be avoided.
