openoffice.org-amd64 works great! trash out 32-bit version ;-)


I've just successfully installed openoffice.org-amd64 and it works just great!
No need to keep 32-bit openoffice in chroot32 anymore.

The installation was a bit tricky, so here what I've done:

1) Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/openoffice.org/ ./

2) manually download openoffice.org-debian-files_1.1.2-2+1.0.1_all.deb from


3) Force the installation of openoffice.org-debian-files:

dpkg -i --force-all openoffice.org-debian-files_1.1.2-2+1.0.1_all.deb

4) Install openoffice.org-amd64 with the following command:

apt-get install openoffice.org-amd64 openoffice.org openoffice.org-l10n-en ttf-opensymbol

5) (Optionally) install any other openoffice.org hyphenation/spellcheck/etc. files via apt-get (as usual).

Enjoy OpenOffice ;-)
