Question Open Office Install problems


Howdy all,

I'm having problems installing things like "Teamspeak" and Netsupport on my 64 bit fedora 14. Now netsupport will run in the terminal window, but won't install.
However the thing that hurts the worst right now, is "Open Office" I open a terminal window, type "su" put in the password and run the installer from a prompt cd'd to the setup file. I get back dependency errors that I don't understand. So I ran the updates and tried again. No luck. I have screenshots of the error messages in case someone could help me decode, they download to full size if they aren't read-able enough. I'm hoping that all these problems may be related.

Thanks in advance,
Bob

you NEED to use
" su -" with the -
su and su - are VERY different

also openoffice is in the fedora repos
why not use yum
Code:
su -
yum search office
the output will have Go-office ( openoffice) and KOffice
