Question Uninstall OOo 1.1.2


I see OpenOffice.org 2.0 is finally out, and I thought I'd try installing it using the Slackbuild script. I currently have version 1.1.2 installed (was done using the installer provided with that version). Since this wasn't installed through a Slackpkg or checkinstall or anything, I don't have any means of removing it. First, is there anything that will conflict if I go ahead and install 2.0. Second, is there an easy way to remove the older version, to avoid confusion if nothing else.

You might check the documentation that came with 1.1.2. There are probably uninstall directions there.

If you install 2.0 over the top of it, one of a few things may happen:
1. Both continue to work.
or
2. 2.0 will clobber important files for 1.1.2, so only 2.0 will work afterwards.
or
3. The installer will be smart enough and ask if you want to upgrade.
