A little more info from you would be helpful to anyone who wants to help.
Such as: what distro are you using? Did you install OO from rpm, tarball, other?
Can't answer the question as posted. But, if you installed from rpm, just use
rpm -U <new filename>.rpm to upgrade an exixting installation (replace <new filename>
with the name of the rpm). See the man pages for rpm to learn how to use the -U option.
Or, go to the RedHat site and check out the documentation (a book called Max-rpm).
