openoffice 2.2 upgrade


Hello all,

OS: CentOS 5

I am upgrading my openoffice from 2.0 to 2.2 these are the step i took:

remove old office yum remove "*office*"
followed the openoffice step to install new 2.2 yum localinstall *.rpm
then installed desktop invironemat yum install openoffice-redhat-rpm

rebooted my system and everything worked the way it suppose to until I ran "yum update" which is trying to install the old version of openoffice, some how it doesn't see that i have the upgraded 2.2 version.
my question how do i make the system aware of the new version? why this behavior is happing? just to test things i did go through with yum updates and it downgraded my office to the old version yet when i run rpm -qa "*office*" i see 2.2 versions:

Put the line below in your /etc/yum.conf and yum won't attempt to upgrade openoffice.
Code:
exclude=openoffice*

The openoffice packages in Fedora probably have a higher package build version than the OOo rpms.
