The install-instructions for Linux-users on the website are outdated and misleading. They still regard version 3.3 and not 3.5. For inexperienced users it causes installation failures because the version-numbers in the command-instructions doesn't fit the new 3.5 version.
Additionally for Fedora/Redhat: the rmp-file (at least LibO_3.5.3_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz) doesn't contain a desktop-integration package for RedHat as stated in the install-instructions. On Fedora 16 this makes the program "invisible" to the normal user. It works with the freedesktop desktop-integration package (libreoffice3.5-freedesktop-menus-3.5.3-2.noarch.rpm), but for inexperienced users the whole process is pretty misleading and will probably cause installation failure.
Indeed, the http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/installation/linux/ page is a bit lenghty and confusing. It should be rewritten version-agnostic because it seems that noone maintans that page.
moving from mab3.6 to mab4.0 since that webpage seems not yet updated.
If it's a matter of simplifying and cleaning up a web-page, it'd be fantastic to get this MAB closed with a few web edits :-) Any chance of that Christian ?

Setting priority to highest as this is a 4.0 MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.
Moving to mab4.1 (Bug 60270) because:
- 4.0 reached EOL (End Of Life)
- bug confirmed in later version (checked the page today, still refers to versions 3.3 and 3.4)
On the new webpage this redirects to the wiki, where the instructions can be improved as we go:
