Hi Sophie

Well - the foundation is, A Foundation..good news yes!

And here is the link to a VM pre-enstalled (mostly :-? )
The sustudio profile page is:

You know if I could maybe see to change the port number in the next
build one could actually demo this using the testdrive feature at

So, the VM there is just the installation files are the 3.6 (master)
build out from my machine (I'm sure they could be smaller) with the JeOS
(Just enough Operating System) template, and not much (not enough it
seems) more.

I put a copy of the download file here also (fo anyone not wanting to
register an account at suseStudio):
MD5: 78de314bc29101f1e70674b27c39cf11

So it is pretty straight forward
Download the compressed file
un-pack to a directory of your choice
it will create a dir with that silly name
by default
create your entry in your vm manager of choice (VBox, KVM, Quem)
Start the vm and get to a command prompt (logon as tux, password linux)
you can start LibO in listening mode with the shell script

Best wishes,
