Description of problem:
When I click any openoffice.org application, it won't start at all after update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply start any openoffice.org application
Actual Results: openoffice.org won't start due to the missing libicui18n.so.34.
/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/swriter.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.34: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Expected Results: openoffice.org application should be loaded
how did you manage to install the rpm without resolving the icu dependancy at
rpm installation stage ?
rpm -qRp openoffice.org-core-1.9.129-2.2.fc5.i386.rpm | grep icu
so it shouldn't have installed unless libicui18n.so.34 was available. Using yum
should have pulled in the libicu requirement.
> rpm -q libicu say ?
I have used pup for updating openoffice.org. I found out pup was broken which
problably explains why libicu could not be found.
Using "rpm -q libicu" will say that that package is not installed. I have no
idea how yum managed to remove libici because previous
openoffice.org-core-1.9.127 worked like charm.
Now that the problem is found, I guess I can peacefully set that bug as solved.
