Updating openoffice Sexleady photo
So, in the steps that follow I will uninstall the Open Office IPS package and run the Open Office installer that was just downloaded.
If a newer version is available, you can choose to download the update.
Open Office is not included in the base installation of Open Solaris 2008.05 (there's only so much we can fit on a CD), however, it is available via the Package Manager, which I have gone ahead and installed.
I know I have the latest version of Open Office (according to the Package Manager) because the Latest Version column is empty: However, when running an Open Office application, such as Impress, it informs me that there's even a newer version available: So naturally I click the icon to start the download and learn that version 2.4.1 is available: And then click the Download button: Once the download completes, I click the Install button, which first tells me it's going to shut down Open Office 2.4 before installing the update: But here's where things go south, as the update process fails: My guess here is that Open Office is trying to update itself using the traditional SVR4 packaging and doesn't know how to deal with packages installed using the new Image Packaging System (IPS).
The first thing you'll want to do is read through these instructions completely, and use the Apache Open Office site to answer any questions you might have.
The site contains documentation for users of all levels, beginner to advanced; a good place to get started for all new users of Apache Open Office would be browsing the FAQ.
