I'm using rawhide with the latest xorg and a gnome desktop environment. Using

1.9.87-2 should unblock this
*** Bug 151996 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
works for me(tm) with 1.9.87-2
Still no luck with openoffice.org-1:1.9.87-2
[lanos ~]$ oowriter
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
no suitable windowing system found, exiting.
[lanos ~]$ rpm -q openoffice.org-writer
can you do
> rpm -q startup-notification
> rpm -q libgcj
and what's your desktop gnome or kde ?
I'm running gnome
[lanos ~]$ rpm -q startup-notification
[lanos ~]$ rpm -q libgcj
strange, I've got those and openoffice.org-core 1.9.87-2 and I'm not seeing a
"no suitable windowing system" error, or the "Could not find a JRE error", which
should be more of a warning than a fatal error.
I did a fresh install with FC4 test1 x86_64 DVD iso and have been keeping the
system up to date with Rawhide. OO.o has been giving that error form day 1.
Let my know if there is anything else that you want me to run/do.
[lanos ~]$ yum list all libgcj
Setting up Repos
Reading repository metadata in from local files
libgcj.x86_64 4.0.0-0.37 installed
should the i386 version be available in the x86_64 tree?

I had the "no suitable windowing system" problem on my x86_64 rawhide box until
I installed startup-notification.i386 just now. The JRE error I got past by
installing the j2re.i586 package from the dag repository.
Just installing startup-notification.i386 worked for me. I still get the
javaldx warning but I think it was pointed out that that's no biggie.
