"does it run on amd64 yet?"

Why wouldn't it?? OO 2 runs fine on x86-64. Been using it with Suse 10.

32bit binaries will run fine on x86-64. That was the entire point of making the architecture backwards compatible. But OO.o is still not compiled as 64bit code and won't be for a long time.

only if you have the necessary 32-bit libraries installed... OO.o is bloated enough already...

that's what i thought... i guess i'll just stick with koffice for now...

You're running it because your AMD64 can also run x86 code, OO.org is still not compiled as x86_64.
