Now I have to find my book. I bought it and used DSL for a bit, but never got seriously into Linux.

My interest is more in oddball stuff, so DSL seems like a better fit than big Distros. I have an old Gateway Solo 1200 and nothing else would handle the video.

I wonder if it would work on the Raspberry PI.

Unfortunately the system requirements page (https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/system-requirements/#Linux) specifies that it requires Linux kernel 2.6.18 or higher. DSL uses the 2.4.31 kernel, and I believe DSL-N uses 2.6.11. This means that you probably won't be able to get the latest LibreOffice to compile on any version of DSL (unless you upgrade the kernel, which is a major project).

Apache OpenOffice 4.1 requires kernel 2.6 (http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/sys_reqs.html), so won't work with DSL but should with DSL-N. Version 3.3 is the last that will work with the 2.4.31 kernel in DSL (you will need to use 3.2 though if you don't want to compile glibc yourself, as 3.3 isn't compatible with the glibc libraries in the MyDSL respository (eg. compile.uci)).

I'll leave you to find out which, if any, past versions of LibreOffice are compatible with DSL. I vaguely remember checking myself using the release notes and finding that none supported the 2.4 kernel, but I may be mistaken.

Is is possible to install libreoffice (base) on DSL?

Just found that openoffice is provided as a myDSL Application Extension (http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/apps/) but totally outdated: version 1.1.4 from 03/11/2005 and 1.1 from 12/03/2004

How can I install openoffice or libreoffice myself?

DSL comes with libstdc++5. You may be able to get this package (https://archive.debian.net/sarge/libstdc++6-dev) to install, even though it is for a later version of Debian than the one DSL is based on, by manually installing other dependencies.

It may be easier to compile libstdc++6, which part of the GCC compiler (http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-6/), from the source code.

Remember to also check the other dependencies that the program you are trying to run requires. It is possible that it may require a later Linux kernel than the 2.4.31 version used by DSL, and this will make it incompatible. If so, you may want to check past versions of the program before moving on to other alternatives.

EDIT: Sorry, as for apt-get (even though it won't help you anyway, because there are no libstdc++6 packages for Debian Woody), you can download the dsl-dpkg.dsl MyDSL extension to enable it from the "System" section of the MyDSL respository (http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/mydsl/).
