I haven't tried to install AOO in "update mode" by folloiwng these 
instructions:  (issue 119162 --

* upgrade to 3.4 by command: rpm -Uvh o*.rpm

(I installed it in a separate directory as a "new " install a while back.)

I will do this today, but...

if there IS a problem with installing over 3.3, is there some reason we 
can't tell Linux users to de-install 3.3 first before installing 3.4 as 
part of the release notes?

Scripting this de-installation might be a bit tricky depending on 
distro, but all Linux users should know how to de-install on their own.

and re openSuSE and maybe others -- the symlink from the original OOo 
main, soffice, noramlly "/usr/bin/soffice", will still need to be 
investigated -- maybe also include in release notes.
