Open Office 3.1.1.19.5el5_5.1 Crashes on Redhat RHEL 5.5


Open Office crashes each and every time I try to save anything, profile, settings, documents, spreadsheets. I submitted a help ticket to redhat, the engineer had me remove and download open office once again. The problem still persists. I have waited about two weeks for a 2nd reply from redhat, so far nothing. The particulars are:

I had to reload my system. I downloaded and checked the installation disks from redhat. Once the system was downloaded I tried to run Open Office, it crashed as stated. I submited a ticket and removed Open Office as instructed using the Yum command and reinstalled Open Office using yum. The installation was taking a considerable time and I had to leave the computer. When I returned the system had rebooted so I don't know if the download was successful. What should I do?

The error message generated when the system crashes is attached.

No it isn't and neither are the users Xorg log or any other errors possibly recorded in /var/log.*.

have you tried the current oo version 3.2.1
http://download.openoffice.org/
and ( seeing as you have not stated 32 bit or 64 bit or language ) -- the English only 32 bit rpm
http://download.services.openoffice....E_en-US.tar.gz
