Thread: OpenOffice 3 not starting

    Default OpenOffice 3 not starting

    I previously updated OpenOffice on two computers via the repo at:

    Index of /repositories/OpenOffice.org:/STABLE/openSUSE_11.1

    It seemed to be working on both machines, but after running an update on both machines on 2 February, OO will not start on either machine, neither by user nor by root. A fatal error dialog box pops up after OO loads about 25% stating: "The application cannot be started".

    This occurs whether starting OO or an OO component (oowriter, etc...). There are no errors or any information shown in a terminal window either, OO justs initiates and then closes with the fatal error. Deleting user profiles does nothing. Removing, deleting the OpenOffice program directory, and reinstalling OO does nothing. There are no indications of failed dependencies during installation.

    Any ideas?

    and older 3.0.0.9 works too if you will istall it

    Thanks,

    Deleting all the 3.0.0.9 packages & reinstalling from the OO repo worked.

    This seems to be a mismanagement of repositories issue rather than simply package dependency issues. OpenSuSE should not have placed such different and unique OpenOffice packages in the main repositories.
