I wouldn't know, I pulled the Ubuntu version of OOo  off all my boxes and 
created my own debs for the official OOo 2.0.4 by using alien on the 
extracted rpm files out of the .tgz download package. I'm slightly miffed 
that 2.1 came out just a month after having done this, but it was good 
training, so I just buckled down and repeated the process.
