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):
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results: Hang on initialization
Expected Results: Proper user configuration and launch of software

The javarc file
What version of OpenOffice?
rpm -q openoffice
[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:

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.
It works now with the rawhide packages.
Thanks for your prompt testing and feedback.
Closing as fixed in RAWHIDE.
