If you absolutely have to have updated deb packages before they are packaged for your distro, it is a much better idea to take the source deb from the current release, replace the orig.tar.gz, and bump the version. Using packages, especially ones as complex as OOo, that aren't packaged properly is playing russian roulette with your machine.
If the dependencies don't match, you could edit the debian/control files in each source package and edit them for Edgy's packages. I expect that would work just fine.
In general, the Ubuntu Packaging Guide covers this kind of thing reasonably clearly: https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/packagingguide/C.
Hope this helps, Andrew Conkling ___________________________________________________________________________ Philadelphia Linux Users Group -- http://www.phillylinux.org Announcements - http://lists.phillylinux.org/mailman/listinfo/plug-announce General Discussion -- http://lists.phillylinux.org/mailman/listinfo/plug
