Yes, but be advised that the old copy was also a straight from OOo.org
version, rarely have I tolerated the brokenness of the distro versions for
very long. It is packed as rpms however and includes the real, 100%
compatible java too, so the install seems to be distro friendly as long as
the distro uses rpms. However, I noted when I went after it again last week,
that there are now .deb friendly versions too.
My biggest bitch is that the mirror I pulled it from the last time seems to
be throttled to about 300 baud someplace, so it took much of a day to pull
that 180 megs. That sucks to put it mildly.
