OOo204 works on OpenBSD 4.0 with these instructions:
Code:
Install/setup Linux emulation
Download OOo_2.0.4_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz to /tmp
As root, issue these commands:
   A. cd /tmp
   B. tar xfz OOo_2.0.4_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
   C. mkdir /emul/linux/opt
   D. touch /etc/mnttab
   E. cd /tmp/OO*/RPMS/
   F. For each rpm file:
/emul/linux/bin/rpm --nodeps --ignoreos --ignorearch --root /emul/linux --dbpath /var/lib/rpm -ivh XXX.rpm

use this command to run OOo:

/emul/linux/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
OOo was installed into /emul/linux/opt/openoffice.org2.0/
Local user has directory ~/openoffice.org2/user/

I've only opened a couple of documents so far; and things seem to be working well.

The only problem is that OOo goes through the "Welcome" screens every time I start the program. Sounds like permissions problem - where should I look?

If "Welcome" includes "registration" you might try this thread for some hints.

Thanks for the prompt response; a lot of nested links to other threads in there!

Final answer (for me) is a workaround; always start program with:
Code:
/emul/linux/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice -nofirststartwizard
