Description Robin Norwood 2008-02-13 16:55:03 UTC
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/
total 24
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
installed oo-writer.

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

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2008-02-14 11:08:59 UTC
Fix checked in, should be ok in >= 2.4.0-7.2

Comment 3 Robin Norwood 2008-02-14 17:12:48 UTC
Dear java: please stay out of my homedir.


(I'll check it out when 2.4.0-7-2 hits rawhide)
