	Great - the most basic console output; it is a start of course. But
this is really only a scratch into a rich seam of research:

Unpacking libobasis3.4-ogltrans (from
libobasis3.4-ogltrans_3.4.0-103_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing libobasis3.4-ogltrans_3.4.0-103_i386.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite '/opt/libreoffice/basis3.4/share/config/soffice.cfg/simpress/transitions-ogl.xml', which is also in package libobasis3.4-impress 3.4.0-103

	Sounds like we need to grep for 'transitions-ogl' goodness inside our
packaging code - please have a grep around in the scp2/ module and see
what you can find there, to make a prototype fix.

Setting up libreoffice3-dict-en (3.4.0-103) ...
/opt/libreoffice/program/../basis-link/ure-link/bin/javaldx: symbol lookup error: /opt/libreoffice/ure/bin/../lib/libuno_cppuhelpergcc3.so.3: undefined symbol: _ZTIN9salhelper21SimpleReferenceObjectE, version UDK_3_0_0
/opt/libreoffice/program/unopkg.bin: symbol lookup error: /opt/libreoffice/program/../basis-link/program/libxcrli.so: undefined symbol: _ZN4cppu11OWeakObject12queryAdapterEv, version UDK_3_0_0
find: `/opt/libreoffice/./share/prereg/bundled': No such file or directory
Setting up libreoffice3-dict-es (3.4.0-103) ...

	Also looks odd; we need more information on what symbols the libraries
export; find that with: objdump -T foo.so - and hunt around for the
symbols it mentions. Similarly where this 'find ... bundled' comes from
in the source is worth digging out: use './g grep prereg/bundled' and
dig through it I guess.

	The more information we have, and the better the detective job - the
more we understand, the more obvious the fix will become. None of this
work is beyond the wit of someone competent at installing things from
the console as you are :-)

	Thanks !
