I have not seen a Slack built for OpenOffice.org. However, there installation program appears to work fairly well. I have installed it several times. They did have a broken script at the end setting up the sym links but I think they have it resolved now.

It is easy to make your own with checkinstall. I did it using their command line install script. The pkg is about 65MB in size.

i don't even think there's a need for a slack package of OO.o. the binary installer of version 1.0.3 works perfectly on my slackware 9.0 pc.
