I think it will work on all VL's.  It's a static app, and all dependencies are included and just stored in the /opt/ directory  (except for java) so they won't conflict with anything else.

LibreOffice has been upgraded to version number 3.3.1 and there is no longer a download available at the address used by the script which started this thread.
###Edited for newest download available as of March 28th, 2011
Use this script instead.
For anyone who wants to take libreoffice for a spin, here is a simple bash script I use to download and install. Copy the script below to a text file save as NAME.sh and run as root... sh ./NAME.sh
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
wget http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/3.3.2/rpm/x86_64/LibO_3.3.2_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz
tar xfv ./LibO*tar.gz
cd ./LibO_3*/
cd ./RPMS
rpm2tgz ./*rpm
installpkg ./*tgz
cd ./desktop*
rpm2tgz ./*freedesktop*rpm
installpkg ./*tgz
exit

Thanks Stretchedthin,

Seems to work great on my VL 6.0 standard system.  I will report if I run into problems. 

At this moment, I wonder if I really need another word processor, but I suppose there is something different from Open Office.  I know I have always felt like the guy driving a semi to 7-11 for a coke when using open office.  Perhaps libreoffice is a bit leaner.

Thanks for testing, John.
Think your still driving a semi to 7-11, but at least now you'll be ready if you ever really, really have to stock up on Twinkies and Doritos's. :)

No, it's not leaner. At this time LibreOffice is just about the same as OpenOffice. Do you know the story behind LibreOffice?

When Oracle bought Sun, a big scare went through the open source community because Sun supplied a good bit of money and developer assistance for OOo, whereas Oracle has not been a friend of open source. Apparently, there was an exodus of OOo developers, who forked into LibreOffice, a community-supported office suite that shares code with OOo. The hope is that LibreOffice will be free of threats of being dropped or turned into a money maker for Oracle. Apparently, Oracle has already started offering "enhancements" for OOo that are not free of charge or free as in speech.

We don't know yet what direction LibreOffice will go in. Some people claim it has performance enhancements already. It will continue to use Open Document Format, so there won't be yet another proprietary format to give compatibility problems.
