Openoffice rpm does not have required depency for libicu
Last modified: 2008-02-26 05:19:49 EST
Description of problem:
Openoffice rpm packages do not have depency for libicu which is mandatory to
even start the application.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 8 with latest updates.
Fresh and minimal installation of FC8 without openoffice or any subcomponents
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openoffice.org-core, openoffice.org-writer & openoffice.org-calc via
Actual results: Launching of oowriter fails, shell output:
[jani@jani-desktop ~]$ oowriter
/usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/swriter.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: libicui18n.so.38: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
Openoffice should start
Installing latest libicu will solve this error.
It does have the correct requires, whatever went wrong for you is not due to a
missing require, but perhaps e.g. due to some *other* bogus icu providing libraries.
rpm -q --requires openoffice.org-core|grep icu
what does e.g. rpm -q --whatprovides libicui18n.so.38 say ?
[jani@jani-desktop ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides libicui18n.so.38
The problem might be in pirut? As i actually remember now that i did not choose
openoffice.org-core, but only writer and calc and core package was show in added
depencies dialog and then i installed libicu manually after i noticed that
oowriter/calc didnt start..
