Re: OpenOffice.org powerpc is 'mixed'

I'm trying to install OOo~bpo on Debian Etch PPC.

AFAICS version 2.3 was compiled a while ago. More recently 2.4 was
uploaded but did not compile for powerpc. Well, I'll install 2.3

However, now there is a mix of 2.3 and 2.4 packages in Packages.gz,
which makes the package uninstallable:
My intuitive feeling is that if 2.4 doesn't build on powerpc, then
it's an error if part of the packages are introduced in Packages.gz
anyway ("all or nothing" situation).


2.4 was successfully built on powerpc (that's the version available in Lenny and sid for powerpc). The backport upload is only a few days old, so presumable you just have to wait for the package to be built.

The older versions of the *_all* packages are still available, you can download on install them manually with dpkg -i if you so wish:
