Hi there LibraOffice people.
I joined this list because I was trying to find a way to let you know
about (what seems to me) to be a small error on the LibraOffice download
page.   Though perhaps I am in the wrong place?

On this download page
it says the system requirements of 6.0.3 for a Mac are OS X 10.8 or
later, however the release notes for 6.0 at  says that
"This releases requires at least OS X 10.9."

That seems a bit confusing and I thought it must be a mistake - hence
this email hoping to let someone know about it.
Cheers, Lu

The specifications are the bare minimum for RAM and Processor speed.

"256 MB RAM (512 MB RAM recommended)" is too small for ease of use. Yes it will run, but slower than many people would like.

I would not recommend having other software/packages running in the background on the lower speed processors and under 1GB of RAM. They should be closed, not just minimized.

We are lucky that the graphics resolution is "X Server with 1024x768 resolution (higher resolution recommended), with at least 256 colors".

I use a package called "DeVeDe" and the resolution needs to be much larger. I have a laptop with "1366x768" as the maximum resolution. DeVeDe needs something like 1600x900 since the height is needed to access some control buttons [like cancel] at the bottom of its "GUI Window". So if you edit the menu options, you cannot do anything else, with the controls not acessible to the user and they need to shut the system down to "force close" the package.
