Greetings,

I tried installing OOo 3.x on an updated Centos 5 desktop (stock OOo
2.x was there), It had the following problems:

1. Installation of JRE 1.6.0 step failed citing dependency issues
(relating to JRE 1.4 being required by OOo 2.x and the such)
2. after installation, It did run as root ok. but as a user keyboard
practically freezes during the first run username entry requiring the
process to be killed.

I need OOo3 calc for its solver functionality for staff scheduling.

Any similar experiences? better yet any solutions (a la Go-oo)?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Rajagopal
