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|grep icu

what does e.g. rpm -q --whatprovides say ?
Comment 2 Jani Mikkonen 2008-02-26 05:19:49 EST
[jani@jani-desktop ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides 
[jani@jani-desktop ~]$ 

The problem might be in pirut? As i actually remember now that i did not choose, 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..
