Description Elliot Peele 2004-10-05 19:40:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031114 Epiphany/1.0.4

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):

How reproducible:

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

Comment 1 Jack Neely 2004-10-05 19:46:33 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2004-10-05 19:50:38 UTC
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?

Comment 3 Elliot Peele 2004-10-05 19:55:12 UTC
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

Comment 4 Elliot Peele 2004-10-05 19:56:20 UTC
Oh, and we're not trying to run the 1.1.2-x series.

Comment 5 Dan Williams 2004-10-05 20:32:48 UTC
Ok, in that case, can somebody get a backtrace for me?

Yes, we're going to have a fix for U5.
