Updating system with yum broke Openoffice.org


Hello,

I updated my system with yum and downloaded several official Fedora Core 3 patches including Openoffice.org ones. After updating I can't open my documents anymore. Openoffice hangs to splash screen phase and I have to kill it off with kill -9.

I tried to downgrade to 1.1.2 again, but I have same problem with that.

I've tried to delete ~/.rhopenoffice1.1 and generate it again with "ooffice" as openoffice package description says, but it won't help. "ooffice" presents screen with menus, but it hangs too when loading documents. Simple testing showed that it hangs even when opening simple text file generated with vi.

I think I have encountered similar problem with Openoffice earlier with FC2, but I never thought that it could happen again.

I'm using default FC3 patched system with KDE desktop. OO.org versions:
1.1.3-11.5.0.fc3 and 1.1.2.

Any pointers how to continue? I'm starting to be quite desperate to get Openoffice working again as I have several crucial files saved to OO-format. These are times when you wish you have saved your work in Microsoft Word-format.

Update to situation

Update: I just noticed something unbeliavable. If I wait about 3 minutes, OO.org will open document. Well, I know it's only 10 years since 1995's, but this is a bit too slow. ;-)

So, it looks like OO.org is waiting something to timeout and starts up after then. Any further ideas? Though I can live with this as documents at least open, but some more speed might not hurt.

Solution

It seems that OO.org wants network connection with CUPS and times out after 3 mins if it can't estabilish it. If anyone else encounters this, check that port 631 is accessible.

Well I had the same problem, when I switched the local firewall off
everything was OK. I'm still trying to find why suddenly the firewall(iptables) working rules has become a problem.

If any one finds out before me please let me know..

Cheers,

BP
