Description of problem:
I just installed Fedora Core 2. OpenOffice binaries disappeared from
/usr/bin. In fact, the *whole* /usr/lib/openoffice directory vanished.
Must reinstall OpenOffice from openoffice.org
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2 on Fedora Core 1
2. Try to run openoffice
Actual Results: OpenOffice no longer present
Expected Results: OpenOffice should not have vanished
Found the OpenOffice directory. However, the binaries *did* vanish for
so you have no /usr/bin/oowriter, /usr/bin/ooffice, etc? can you run:
rpm -ql openoffice.org | grep ooffice
rpm -qv openoffice.org
and attach the results here?
Both commands resulted in no output, except that "packet openoffice is
not present". My old openoffice had been an install from source
(downloaded from www.openoffice.org), which generates binaries called
soffice (not ooffice). Anyway, after installing FC2, the "soffice"
binaries disappeared. Everything was OK after downloading again the
files from www.openoffice.org, compiling and reinstalling.
Flavio, so this has been fixed that, since you do not use the OOo
provided by Fedora, but prefer to use it directly from
www.openoffice.org ? (I conclude that since you get "package
openoffice is not present" from comment 3)
Colin, I didn't quite understand your comment - yes, I had on my
computer the Ooffice installed from www.openoffice.org - it was after
installing FC2 that I had the problem
Flavio, what I meant is that this isn't a bug with the OOo that comes
with Fedora is it? This is a bug with OpenOffice.org itself (i.e. an
seems like an up2date/rpm/yum issue... but since its fixed by
manually installing the packages, closing.
