Newest openoffice.org-libs depends on old db4 library

libdb_cxx-4.2.so is needed by
I believe that dependency is provided by an old, obsolete db4 package
(I have db4-4.3.27-2 installed).
AFAIK, the latest db4 package available for FC2 is:
And since OOo depends on db4-4.2, this should be correct...
Have you installed a later version by yourself?
I'm not talking about FC2, I'm talking about FCdevel. Here's what I have

Summary : The Berkeley DB database library (version 4) for C.
The Berkeley Database (Berkeley DB) is a programmatic toolkit that
provides embedded database support for both traditional and
client/server applications. The Berkeley DB includes B+tree, Extended
Linear Hashing, Fixed and Variable-length record access methods,
transactions, locking, logging, shared memory caching, and database
recovery. The Berkeley DB supports C, C++, Java, and Perl APIs. It is
used by many applications, including Python and Perl, so this should
be installed on all systems.
Well, the update appears to be looking for the FC2 version of OpenOffice.org
then, which is wrong, since Rawhide most definitely has a newer OOo than the RPM
you've listed here that causes the error... Are you sure your yum repo files
dcbw->cmc: when I tried to install 2.0 this weekend, the obsoletes and stuff in
the current OOo 2.0 packages in rawhide aren't correct and it would fail to
install. We need to at least have openoffice.org-core obsolete "openoffice.org"
You're right, I don't use yum, but my custom auto-download script downloaded
old openoffice.org RPMs. Sorry for the false alarm.
