I can reproduce this with latest updates in Fedora Core 3. I've looked around,
and found that this is bug 284096 in Debian Bugzilla
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=284096), a fix/workaround is
available there, plus all explanation of what causes the bug and the true fix
blah die blah (the bug is apparently cups-related...).

To make the fix work, download
http://people.debian.org/~halls/openoffice/test/libpsp645li.so.bz2, bunzip2 it
and move the resulting file to /usr/lib/ooo-1.1/programs/ (backup your old file
just to be sure), symlink the fedora version of libstlport_gcc.so in that same
directory to the name the Debian binary expects (ln -s libstlport_gcc.so
libstlport_gcc.so.4.6) and OO.o will work again. Bit hacky, but hey, it works as
long as there's no new packages.

caolanm->dcbw: You want to add this patch to an FC-2/FC-3 update?, if not bounce
it back and I'll fumble through it.
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2005-04-05 09:31:24 EDT
I'll roll them in
Comment 6 Dan Williams 2005-04-06 10:32:45 EDT
Will be fixed in 1.1.3-10
Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:05:33 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
