Thread: SUSE implementation of Open Office is a shambles.

    Default SUSE implementation of Open Office is a shambles.

    First, with 3.0.0 we had the problem with graph labelling which only happens
    with the SUSE version - there is a bug report on this. Now SUSE have messed
    up the update to 3.0.1.

    On my 4.2 partition, after updating to 3.0.1, Open Office wouldn't run so I
    had to un-install and do a selective re-install. Yesterday OOo was updated
    on my 3.5.5 partition and, surprise surprise, it now doesn't work. So I'll
    have to go through the hassle of un-installing it again and re-installing.
    I think I'd best install the version from the Open Office site.

    After I'd cooled down a bit, I decided to un-install one item at a time,
    then try to start OOo. The first two I tried - "OpenSUSE branding"
    and "components" - didn't help but the third - "core libraries" - allowed
    OOo to start successfully. However, buggy treatment of graphs still
    remains.

    I must say, removing "core libraries" doesn't strike me as the most obvious
    way to get something working!

    There are broken dependencies, see the bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=471280

    It is pity the nobody reported it earlier. The OOo-3.0.1-beta1 package was in the OpenOffice_org:UNSTABLE project before Christmas.

    Anyway, I am sorry for all the troubles.
