Fresh install of OpenOffice on rawhide fails to start - access rights
Last modified: 2008-02-19 09:47:09 EST
I didn't have openoffice installed on my rawhide box, and ran:
sudo yum install openoffice.org-writer
Yesterday to install it.
When I run it, I get the following dialog box:
The application cannot be started.
OpenOffice.org user installation could not be processed due to missing access
rights. Please make sure that you have sufficient access rights for the
following locations and restart OpenOffice.org:
[rnorwood@solitude ~]$ ls -la .openoffice.org2.0/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2008-02-12 11:34 ./
drwxrwxr-x 72 rnorwood rnorwood 4096 2008-02-13 10:41 ../
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2008-02-12 11:34 user/
So that directory was created with the wrong perms, at about the time I
I was able to reproduce this by removing openoffice.org-* rpms, rm -rf
.openoffice.org2.0 (as root), and re-installing with yum.
chown-ing the directory to rnorwood.rnorwood fixes the problem also.
ah damnit, got to be the stupid unopkg putting things in $HOME during rpm
installation, very not good
Fix checked in, should be ok in >= 2.4.0-7.2
Dear java: please stay out of my homedir.
(I'll check it out when 2.4.0-7-2 hits rawhide)
