Description of problem:
The OpenOffice apps produce the following error (after a min or two) when attempting to start:
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
no suitable windowing system found, exiting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run oowriter from the shell
2. Wait for output to be produced
3. Note failure message
This was attempted directly after a fresh install. "firstboot" also failed when booting (see bug 151577). Probably not related but thought it was worth mentioning.
I am experiencing a very similar problem. When I first installed fc4 test1, I
was able to use oowriter (and all of the oo components). However after yumming
to openoffice.org build 1.9.87-1 I get the error message " no suitable windowing
system found, exiting."
After updating to build 1.9.87-2 via yum, the problem appears resolved--at
least for me?
Eric have you tried this?
install the i386 startup-notification
