StarOffcie 5.0 does not work with new glibc on RH 6.0
A non-broken version of StarOffice will ship on the vendor CD
of the Official version of Red Hat 6.0.

I recently upgraded to RH6.0 and found that StarOffice
nolonger works. I tried a fresh reinstall of StarOffice and
found that I was missing libraries. I beleive that SO is
compiled to work under glibc2 and RH6.0 has glibc2.1
installed on it. I thought glibc2.1 was backward compatible
with glibc2. I guess not 100% compatible.
