Description John Thacker 2005-04-12 10:27:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
Upgrading from a version of openoffice.org to a later version leaves files from the old version scattered around.  For example, upgrading from 1.9.89 to 1.9.92 left an empty /usr/lib/openoffice.org1.9.89/share/readme directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade version of openoffice.org, such as by yum

Actual Results:  /usr/lib/openoffice.org-1.9.89/share/readme is still present

Expected Results:  That directory should have been erased like everything else from the old version

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-13 07:50:21 EDT
lets see if it happens on any new upgrades.
right now what is the output of
rpm -qf /usr/lib/openoffice.org-1.9.92
do you happen to run openoffice as root, or just as normal user ?
Comment 2 John Thacker 2005-04-13 08:55:57 EDT
Hmm.  Seems like it's ok with 1.9.92; after I removed it, the files were all
gone.  rpm -qf /usr/lib/openoffice.org-1.9.92 doesn't show any unowned files. 
So I'll close this.  Never run it as root, BTW.
Comment 3 John Thacker 2005-04-23 12:24:17 EDT
Well, I upgraded to openoffice.org-1.9.93 and this problem is back.  The
/usr/lib/openoffice.org/share/readme directory stuck around, albeit empty.

I've never run openoffice as root, just as a normal user.
Comment 4 John Thacker 2005-04-28 11:57:30 EDT
Occurred again upgrading to 1.9.96
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-14 11:01:43 EDT
I'll stabilize on a single openoffice.org2.0 directory
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-28 07:50:21 EDT
as of 1.9.112 its always /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0
