Try here:

Then search for openoffice.  There appears to be:
 openoffice.org-1.0.3_7.tbz     61241 KB        09/26/06        
 openoffice.org-2.0.20060928.tbz        114724 KB       10/09/06        
 openoffice.org-2.0.4.rc3.tbz   114277 KB       10/08/06        

        Oustanding, thanjs much indeed!  Now, dumb questions dept:
do I just type # fetch ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/..../ for the last one, -2.0.4.rc3.tbz? Or what? I've never retrived the OOo package before. ...Not that that's much of an excuse... .

You could:
- copy the above URL into your favorite web browser, then scroll down to the file of choice. - Use your favorite FTP client. Go to ftp.freebsd.org... navigate the dirs.
 - Use fetch(1) and append the filename to the end of the URL.

Any of the above should get you the file. Then you can use pkg_add(1) to install it.

I used the *.2.0.20060928.tbz myself. It produces some version of 2.0.4. I assume (right or wrong) it is a little more recent than the release candidate.


        I think this is the last thing to replace/upgrade.

        thanks, people,
