Unless he used this:
as seen here: http://blog.janik.cz/archives/2005-12-09T20_01_27.html
Please note these are "very-pre-beta-do-not-use-it AMD64 build".
It works with unstable without ia32-libs for example.
wget ftp://ftp.linux.cz/... (91M download)
tar xzf OOo_SRC680_m145_LinuxAMD_install_en-US_rpm.tar.gz
fakeroot alien --to-deb *.rpm
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
It works here (ssh on a P4 EM64T).
I could start OOo, type a few words, change font and exit without a crash.
Of course, you can expect problems.
Anyway, thanks Pavel Janik for your work!
