Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-03-21 03:57:56 EST
Actually libgcj should be sufficient, I've added a Requires on libgcj which is
what should be necessary rather than the Sun java offering.
Comment 2 Quereller 2005-04-16 13:35:30 EDT
Fresh network-install of FC4T2 "Standard Desktop"

Had to remove libgcj.x86_64 and to install libgcj.i386 and
startup-notification.i386 to make it run.
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-18 04:52:56 EDT
What version was in FC4T2, I believe this to be fixed in >= 1.9.89-4, in a
current rawhide package. 
rpm -qRp openoffice.org-core-1.9.92-2.i386.rpm | grep libgcj
libgcj >= 4.0.0
rpm -qRp openoffice.org-core-1.9.92-2.i386.rpm | grep startup
Comment 4 Quereller 2005-04-23 11:03:05 EDT
it was openoffice.org-core-1.9.89-3, it's fixed in 1.9.92-2
