This is a usability thing, search means search not guess a name. Perhaps a failed search should dump a web link.Want a wrapper to do it for you? :-))This thing is quicker though..... There are a few problems with differences between RH and debian for open office though. Working through them, will post on OpenOffice list when finished.OpenOffice is in the process of being packaged Debian. It looks _really_ scary, but I don't know how they are going, as they just did a call for helpers on debian-devel, and got their own list set up.
I am getting a problem with sablot right now. I do not sonsider myself a novice but I have never had a successful compile and run of Open Office. It is an ugly moving beast which takes two days to compile completely on a P350, when it compiles.
I 'hope' I am acting like a quality control right now forcing complete compiles and finding the problems. I am a bit sus that OO does not really do this internally. I just found some basic faults in the configure script this weekend.
Slightly different tack. If I want to set up some old junkers as quick boot web browsers I notice that GDM will automatically sign in saving that login prompt. Anyone used this, any up sides or down sides. Might be good for my kids computers.
