Description of problem:
I've got a clean Phoebe install, and when trying to launch /usr/bin/ooffice or
/usr/bin/oowriter for any user (all new home accounts, I'm migrating previous
accounts over) I get:

[plong@localhost plong]$ ooffice
Checking for existing user installation ...   ...   NOT FOUND
Performing first-time installation for user ...

Which sits there doing nothing 

It stops after creating:


I haven't installed java yet.  I'll go do that now and try again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch open office

Actual Results:  Hang on initialization

Expected Results:  Proper user configuration and launch of software

The javarc file

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2003-02-18 03:26:39 UTC
What version of OpenOffice?
rpm -q openoffice

Comment 3 Philip Long 2003-02-18 14:02:37 UTC
[plong@localhost plong]$ rpm -q openoffice

Also, installing java does not help at all.  

Does open office depend on some of 2.5 kernel threading backport that you did? 
I installed phoebe on a Shuttle SN41 (nForce2 board) and had to install a less
patched kernel to get some of the drivers to work.  I'm using the red planet kernel.

I ask becuase there There seems to be a thread problem:

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2003-02-18 14:08:58 UTC
Please retry with current rawhide openoffice (1.0.2-2) and glibc (2.3.1-46+).
Our openoffice doesn't use Java at all, so it is expected installing Java
doesn't change a bit.

Comment 5 Philip Long 2003-02-18 16:12:09 UTC
It works now with the rawhide packages.

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-19 01:15:09 UTC
Thanks for your prompt testing and feedback.

Closing as fixed in RAWHIDE.
