Description of problem:
The main OO.org package is missing a dep for OO.org-i18n. If i18n
isn't installed openoffice doesn't run.
If a user has never run openoffice it fails when setting up there
preferences. If they have run openoffice before it sig 11s and gives a
nice stack trace.
This is rather anoying since it breaks all new installs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a fresh install of RHEL 3 WS U3
2. Try to run openoffice
Actual Results: openoffice crashes one way or another
Expected Results: it should start properly
This bug is considered a show stopper for deploying RHEL and NCSU.
Kinda hard to be productive when the office suite doesn't work. :-)
I'd attach the stack trace that OO.org prints out, but it is simply
that the openoffice.org-i18n package is missing.
Ummmm, 1.1.2-x isn't supported on RHEL3 yet. The latest version of
OOo on RHEL3 is 1.1.0-16.14.EL.
Are you saying that you've tried to compile the most current OOo (from
Fedora Core 3 test 2) on RHEL3?
This affects openoffice.org-1.1.0-16.14.EL as well. I was just looking
at the most recent version openoffice in rhn when I selected a version
Oh, and we're not trying to run the 1.1.2-x series.
Ok, in that case, can somebody get a backtrace for me?

Here you are...one stack trace from OO
Any chance of this getting fixed any time soon?
Yes, we're going to have a fix for U5.
