does someone know why the latest snapshot is just provided as rpms?
i'm using xandros and i can convert rpm to de, but i seem to miss some deps.
why not using the native installer as before?
sorry, but this just sucks!
pls provide the snapshots with the ooo-installer as before!

thx.

I confirm, this RPM stuff is a BIG mistake ... switch back to the installer.
Openoffice is not that open any more ...

I agree. Shipping muoltiple rpms instead of an installer is a big mistake.
Is this bugzilla-fodder or not?

Searching in issuezilla for "rpm", returns 12 results:

I always used a rpm based distribution, but agree that is not the best solution (in fact, is the worst): a "system independent" install process is needed for a "system independent" program...
