For those who wish to install on 64 bit;Download the 32 bit paakcge as described in the tutorialeverything is the same up to the point of installing the paakcges, so extract etc. the same as described.before you install the paakcges make sure you have the 32 bit libs installed;    sudo apt-get install ia32-libsThen use the same command to install the debs but with  force-architecture' added, so the install command will become;    sudo dpkg -i force-architecture ~/Desktop/BEA300_m2_native_packed-2_en-US.9301/DEBS/*.debI have had no issues so far using OOo3 on 64bit Hardy.  In fact the only thing stopping me from replacing 2.4 with 3 is the lack of gnome integration so I can't open network files in openoffice without mounting the shares.The new notes feature is excellent, finally we are catching up with some much needed professional office features.
$ sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

An alternative would be to hold down Ctrl+Alt+SysRq (SysRq is usually the same key as PrintScreen) and type very slowly R E I S U B. A way to remember this is by inverting the word: "BUSIER" or remembering a phrase: "Restart Even If System Utterly Broken". This would also safely shutdown the system.

= Hardware Video Decode Acceleration (EXPERIMENTAL) =

This is confirmed to work for newer RadeonHD GPU's (those with UVD2). If you have a RadeonHD 4000 series or newer, you have UVD2. To see the complete list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Video_Decoder#UVD_enabled_GPUs
 +
If you have an older RadeonHD with UVD, you can use Catalyst 10-7 to get working acceleration, but users have confirmed acceleration broken since then.
 +
 +
For acceleration to work, you will need libva from this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~dtl131/+archive/catalysthacks and the xvba va-api backend from: http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne/xvba-video/
 +
With those installed, you can get acceleration from any video player that uses VA-API. A compatible version of VLC is available in the aforementioned PPA.
