    How can I upgrade from openoffice.org 1.0?


    Openoffice.org 1.0 is the default package with my RedHat 9 distro. I want to upgrade to the latest version of openoffice.org
    I would like to do this using yum or apt-get (both of which I have got).
    Can someone tell me the changes to be made in my yum.conf or sources.list files so that I can point them to an appropriate repository?
    Or is there any other way to do this upgrade?
    I have googled for a long time and found no answers. Would appreciate your help.
    Thanks.

    As Red Hat stopped supporting the version 9 distribution a few months ago it might be better to just upgrade to a current distribution (ie: FC2) and you'll get the new OO.

    Sorry that isn't much of an answer...

    You can download OO rpm for fedora 2 and it will work for RH9.Try rpm -Uvh *.rpm
