That was my workstation 2 years ago, P4 2GHz, 1GB RAM.
But Ghiuseppe Ghibo had the same problems, as OOo couldn't
be put through buildsystem because of various limitations
and problems with the build.

So maybe you can also understand why the OOo version was
never the latest in mandriva, or not the same as the stable
OOo releases at the same time. But everyon in need could
grab official OOo tarballs and use them.

Now let's get on topic again ...
