Open Office Problem


So what happens is when I runopen office I cannot create new documents, of any kind, or open old documents.

I run Fedora 5

Anyone know what I might be missing? Also I let Fedora install open office for me when I was putting Fedora on my system.

How did you install openoffice? Have you yum updated it and your system?

Hmm well I just checked it on the prepackaged software that comes with Fedora. I am still trying to get the hang of Yum. I would just use yum if I downloaded the package straight from the site correct? Or would I have to yum update as well?

On all this stuff you are much better NOT downloading rpms. Just use yum. You may have to add a couple of repos (separate question) to get all the software you want. 90% of the software most people want is available through the standard repos. With yum there is no compiling necessary. No dependancy issuses (for the most part). But most importantly you do not need to tune the package to be able to run on FC.

Hmm ok, personally I like learning how things work. I will look deeper into yum though.

If you are interested in learning and tinkering (nothing wrong with that) you would probably be better off with one of the compile everything destros. FC is more setup to use yum to install large packages easily. The comprises that have been done to accomplish that make it more difficult to compile and install major components. If that is more your direction PM Electro he could advise you far better than I can on such systems.

Good Luck
