I believe the /opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/openoffice-ms-format-
defaults.sh script has an error in the 64-bit version. It tries to
access files in /usr/lib, while they are in /usr/lib64. I don't know
who wrote or maintains this script, but could this be fixed for the
64-bit version of K12LTSP (5EL)?
