I know of successful builds and deployment from the OOo src.rpm

The OOo spec has support for building c/c++ with gcc 3 and the java bits
Thanks a lot for your reply!
I _was_ wondering whether there was a way to update the gcc4 packages
and build OOo that way. I look for instructions on this or just try to
figure it out on my own.
The upstream release are also in RPMS, which install into /opt.
be larger and slower than ours (piles of redundant duplicate libs), have
the old file picker by default, not be available for ppc, not have the
langpacks like we do, not have dictionaries for a pile of languages. But
they should install and work under fc3.
I believe the file picker is the new one in the betas from

solution. Especially RPMs installing in /opt is a major pain, since
/opt is shared via NFS at our site.
