Where is the Openoffice package?


Everytime I do pkg_add -r openoffice it cant find it. I logged into the server manually and looked and the package wasnt there either.

Has something happened to open office? or should I just port compile it?

Don't ask me why they are kept there... but they are. I've gotten into the habit of downloading it because it is a VERY long build (like 8+ hours on my computer).

Hope that helps.

What exactly do I do once I download all those files?

Edit: NvM, I looked at the install guide. Gotta download them all too one directory and then extract one tar then run setup in X evironment.
