    Packages for Linux Distributions (Not compiled by Apache OpenOffice developers) -

    - -

    Many Linux distributions now include a version of Apache OpenOffice in their -own native package manager format (.rpm, .deb, etc.). These packages have -been built and are supported by the distributions' own teams, not by -Apache OpenOffice. Some distributions have strict policies around licensing, -which means they have chosen to disable parts of Apache OpenOffice which rely -on software which does not meet their criteria (e.g. the Fedora rpms have -disabled the parts of Apache OpenOffice which require Java).

    -

    Note: Please check carefully before using a third-party build that -it does actually include all the parts of Apache OpenOffice that you will -require. Replacing a 'native' distribution build with the full Apache OpenOffice -original build can be tricky, but can usually be successfully accomplished by -completely removing the existing 'native' install.
