Wish I had a straight answer for but I do not. Just some ideas. For one thing, OOo is a gigantic memory eating slug and I would opt for AbiWord if you do not need to open M$office et. al. docs. 64 megs is really not enough to run it and that may be the issue. Or it could be corrupted, not the first time I have read complaints baout 1.1.0. You could try starting it from the CLI and see if it prints anything to the terminal.
