My Synaptic Package Manager in Hoary shows openoffice.org 1.1.3-8ubuntu2.3 is installed. Just under that it shows openoffice.org2 188.8.131.52-0ubuntu2 and it's not installed.
I'm curious if I simply install the openoffice.org2 with Synaptic Package Manager will it overwrite the older openoffice.org or should I unistall openoffice.org first.
I see the part about Package -> Force Version, but I'm not yet sure if that means 'smooth upgrade'.
openoffice.org2 synaptic upgrade
If you've had experience with that
I'd like to know how it went.
(I already know that many will advise to uninstall first, whether they have this experience or not.)
Also, I'm on dial-up, so anything I do as far as downloading large stuff has to be given a little extra thought here.
