[Solved] upgrading AOO-4.0 to AOO-4.0.1

Postby jaxjoe » Mon Oct 21, 2013 2:33 am

Gents:

My first post ... running Ubuntu 12.04 on a XEON_1240/MSI-gd55 system.

Several months ago I installed AOO-4.0 using this tutorial: viewtopic.php?t=50119

The instructions are very clear and explicit; installation proceeded without issue. Now I read that a revised AOO is out; Synaptic Package Manager of-course knows nothing ... At the AOO download page I see no **UPDATE** button ... nor any detailed installation instructions. Will someone point to an equivalent tutorial for **upgrading** AOO-4.0 to AOO-4.0.1 under Ubuntu .

Thanks for any assistance.

Just download and install, as you did for 4.0.0

But ... but ... what happens to the **current** AOO_4.0.0 installation ? And current documents ? Is everything old just **over-written** or do the two versions live side-by-side ?? (I think noone wants THAT!) You can see I am **very uncomfortable** and confused with the lack of some auto-upgrade process for AOO, a std. process which for me goes back a decade to RedHat-6 !!

Just follow the same steps exactly.
dpkg will see that there is a former version and replace it.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the edit button if your issue has been fixed.

HD:

Somewhat shockingly ... given that install syntax includes a 37-char filename ... my upgrade to AOO_4.0.1 seems to have worked **the 1st time**. Rigidly follow the install script no matter what "jabberwok" it seems:

Many thanks to HagarD.

BTW:

I have **no idea** how to mark the problem //SOLVED//. May we request a **solved** button?
