I'm having a problem with OpenOffice

Whenever I try to run the program in Gnome, it says the program is starting, and then it just stops. The program never opens up.

I tried running it in the terminal, and this is the message I got:

[norrin@localhost norrin]$ oowriter
Checking for existing user installation ... ... NOT FOUND
Performing first-time installation for user ... /usr/bin/ooffice: line 197: 3379 Segmentation fault /usr/lib/openoffice/program/setup -R:/etc/openoffice/autoresponse.conf

Does anyone know what that means? Should I try reinstalling the RPMs?

as i remember, there is a directory in your /home directory that associated with openoffice. Maybe you can try to open it with nautilus and search for a setup that will allow you to use Oowriter. good luck!
