OOo 2.0 runs fine on this sarge box with the stock kernel-image,
2.6.8-2-686. I had some install issues which were quickly handled by
the mail list:
OOo2 sarge backport fails
Your "hang" problem may be what I experienced. While OOo runs fine
without a java runtime, it does hang the system /looking/ for that
runtime. Just un-check the jre option in the tools/options menu. You
will need the jre to run the openoffice.org-base module (database) and
to use the wizards for creating documents.
I later installed the blackdown java .deb as suggested in the thread above.
