OpenOffice doesn't start

Hi guys... For some reason when I try to open any application from OpenOffice(writer, calc, draw etc) it doesn't work, the OpenOffice logo comes up and it just sits there and nothing happens, I tried opening office from many different users and also reinstalled it, but the same thing keeps happening, it was working fine before I truly don't know whats going on with it now. When I try to open it from konsole this is what I get

[boreo@localhost boreo]$ oowriter
Starting ...
SIOCGIFADDR got '00:00:00:00:00:00'

No errors, no nothing... Any help will be great.. I need this for school.. Thanks.
