You may have noticed that the Sun's StarOffice office package has been put in production in ASIS since October, 23th.
Unfortunately, we experience problems in having StarOffice running on RedHat 6.0/6.1. This is due to problems with the AFS client; Transarc has already acknowledged the problem but has not delivered a patch yet. It is possible to run StarOffice from non-AFS based home directories, though.
StarOffice is not available (yet?) for other UNIXes.
By launching /usr/local/bin/soffice (or /usr/local/bin/staroffice) - which is a wrapper which will set up StarOffice for you.
SUN has set up a Web page with mailing lists and a knowledge database under
