Description of problem:
I cannot cleanly replace (i.e., 'rpm -U') the older openoffice-* packages with
the newer openoffice.org-* packages without first uninstalling the older packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a clean Fedora Core test2 box.
2. Download the newer openoffice.org packages.
3. Attempt to upgrade the packages using 'rpm -U'.
Actual Results: RPM reports several conflicts between the newer and older
versions of several files within the openoffice.org-libs and openoffice.org-i18n
packages. I don't recall seeing any conflicts for the core openoffice.org package.
Expected Results: A clean upgrade.
This is most likely an issue with how the openoffice.org supporting packages
(not the core package) were built. I suspect that the core openoffice.org
package knows it's supposed to replace the core openoffice package, but that the
other two .org packages don't know that they're supposed to replace their
I WOULD have to be the one to log this bug BEFORE checking for newer versions of
the openoffice.org packages.
Fixed in 1.1.0-2. :)
