FWIW, CentOS 6.3 switches from OpenOffice.org and ships with
LibreOffice 3.4.5 according to their announcement so likely no need to
install LibreOffice in that version. <http://centosnow.blogspot.com/>
That makes me suspect that you'd prefer that I test CentOS 5.8.

You didn't say whether you want me to test with the 32-bit or 64-bit
build. I'll go with the 64-bit build on the assumption that you likely
have a fairly new machine.

Best regards,
