using version 0.5 dsl
did sudo -u root dsl-hdinstall
did sudo -u root mkliloboot
now installed on harddisk.
did sudo dpkg-restore
did apt-get update
added the following to /etc/apt/source.list
deb woody main contrib

did sudo su root
did apt-get update
did apt-get install
got the following error message:
some packages could not be installed. this may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of incomming.

since you only requested a single operation it is extrememly likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed.
the following information may help to resolve the situation:
sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies: depends: (>1.0.2-per1.0.3) but it is not going to be installed
e: sorry broken packages
could the problem be that i'm using 0.5 dsl ?? others have had no problem installing openoffice

Seems like alot of work, messing with the deb packages. Someone had to make the deb from

I am running 0.5 and did hd install. I just went to OO web site and downloaded the tarball. As root, I untarred it into tmp, then CD in OO dir there and ran
./setup -net
Installed into /opt directory.
exit from sudo
as user damnsmall, I ran
did the workstation install into my /home/damnsmall directory
next, I sudo su to edit the fluxbox-menu and added a OpenOffice submenu with
entries for writer, calc, draw, and impress.

I wouldn't expect a deb package to know how I would want to install it.
But, anyway the standard install works just fine.
