I've installed each version of SO and have never had any problems using
the provided 'setup' utility. I really only have 1 minor complaint with
SO5 and thats the fact that it takes up so much disk spack in the users
account. I remember one of the SO developers had hacked a multiuser patch
for the in SO4 called AutoMultiUserSetupForSO40Linux.tar.gz I think. This
patched the /net option if i remember correctly and worked beautifully.
Here are the diffs in size of my SO5 and SO4 installs:
[timberwolf:adren:~$]> du -hs /usr/local/Office40/
[timberwolf:adren:~$]> du -hs ~/StarOffice (this is 4.0)
[timberwolf:adren:~$]> du -hs ~/Office50
This is a HUGE difference. The multiuser patch was great! 12M for 4.0 to
140M with 5.0. Does anyone know if there was a multiuser patch for SO5
aswell? I like having a 12M user dir as opposed to a 140M dir.
