Description Bertil Askelid 2004-07-14 17:30:20 UTC
Description of problem: Standard installation of OpenOffice comes with a soft link ~/.openoffice/user/work that links to ~ At installation OpenOffice cleans up old installations and deletes superfluous and old files. Unfortunately, it also traverses the "work" link at this, causing MAJOR DISTURBANCE to my file system. It took me quite some time wondering what was going on and then restoring my home directory from my backups! Is this a virus or what ? Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install OpenOffice 2. 3. Actual results: Deletions of random files in home directory -- lots of them Expected results: DON'T TOUCH MY FILES !!!!!! Additional info:

This link hasn't been created in the installation since before FC2, but if you upgraded continuously, it will have been there. Out of curiosity, it shouldn't be launching the installer, except to "upgrade" if you went from 1.0.x -> 1.1.x, so it should never ask to delete user files. Can you paste the contents of your ~/.sversionrc file here?
Comment 2 Bertil Askelid 2004-07-14 19:07:59 UTC
~/.sversionrc [Versions] OpenOffice.org 1.1.1=file:///home/bertil/.rhopenoffice1.1 May I suggest that you don't follow links outside the ~/.openoffice directory when you clean up. That's way too risky!

Please test with the openoffice.org-1.1.2-5 RPMs in Rawhide, it should be fixed in that version. If the problem persists with that version, please reopen this bug. Thanks!
