    Next time maybe say “Windows and Linux”. Linux should be your preferential platform, at least according to what you write on your site.

    For your information OpenOffice 3.0 packages are not available yet for SUSE in the Build Service. Next time maybe prioritize your platform and then think to Windows.

    Thanks

    This week’s release for Windows is a new stand-alone offering. OpenOffice.org Novell Edition is available on Linux today. The packages for the latest version of OpenOffice.org Novell Edition are available at the openSUSE Build Service here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/OpenOffice.org:STABLE/openSUSE_11.0

    Stay tuned for more information on cross-platform availability for OpenOffice.org Novell Edition.

    Hi David,

    We don’t have enough information to provide appropriate guidance on your issue. However, Novell does offer extensive self-support resources through the Novell Knowledgebase: https://www.novell.com/support/microsites/microsite.do This tool was built by Novell support engineers and partners over years of trouble-shooting and resolving real-life customer problems.

    Novell support forum: https://forums.novell.com/ is another resource where you can ask questions and get advice from our community of system administrators, consultants and engineers. You can also access the openSUSE support forum at https://forums.opensuse.org/

    Finally, Novell does offers a number of comprehensive enterprise-level Linux support programs available here: https://support.novell.com/linux/

    One of these resources should be able to assist with your question.

  5. Hi Grant,

    thanks for your answer. At the time I wrote my comment, no packages were available in the OpenOffice:STABLE repository. However, they were provided soon later.

    I also think I need to clarify that Novell SLE customers will receive OpenOffice 3.0 as an update through the traditional update channel of the distribution, requiring no additional repository, so my comment was partially wrong because I didn’t know of this policy. :-)

    To David: if you want real-time, unofficial, support, you can also use the openSUSE/suse IRC channel on freenode:

    Server: irc.freenode.net
    Channel: #suse

    You will find a lot of helpful people and a nice environment.
