How yum messes up Open Office and how to fix it. Fedora 12


I had open office 3.2 installed and working perfectly
then I ran
yum update
it installed a lot of packages

Open Office no longer worked

On the net I found (note it is truncated in th edisplay but if you put your pointer on it it disp[lays correctly
It explains the problem, .. yum installs a package that is incompatible with OOo 3.2
Code:
Your system is probably installed the wrong version of the package openoffice.org-ure. 
Example on Fedora YUM update upgrade openoffice.org-ure packet from 
openoffice.org-ure-1.6.0-9483 (right package)
 to openoffice.org-ure-3.1.1-19.26.fc12 (wrong package).
It explained how to edit yum.conf so it will not do this and how to reinstall open office.

Just thought I'd share
