[Solved] Issues Installing OO 3.4.1 on RHEL 6.3

Postby OO.Believer » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:18 pm

I would like to install Open Office v3.4.1 on my Linux RHEL v6.3 configuration.

I *think* I removed Open Office in favor of Libre Office; I'd like to evaluate OO 3.4.1 now. There don't appear to be any "leftover" RPMs for OO.

When I attempt to install the OO 3.4.1 RPMs I encounter (the excerpt):

file /opt/openoffice.org/ure/lib/uuresolver.uno.so conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice.org-ure-3.4.1-9593.x86_64 and openoffice.org-ure-3.4.0-9590.i586
file /opt/openoffice.org/ure/share/java/java_uno.jar conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice.org-ure-3.4.1-9593.x86_64 and openoffice.org-ure-3.4.0-9590.i586
file /opt/openoffice.org/ure/share/java/juh.jar conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice.org-ure-3.4.1-9593.x86_64 and openoffice.org-ure-3.4.0-9590.i586
file /opt/openoffice.org/ure/share/java/jurt.jar conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice.org-ure-3.4.1-9593.x86_64 and openoffice.org-ure-3.4.0-9590.i586
file /opt/openoffice.org/ure/share/java/ridl.jar conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice.org-ure-3.4.1-9593.x86_64 and openoffice.org-ure-3.4.0-9590.i586

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Why are you attempting to install the 64 bit in place of the (older) 32 bit?

You are using:

# rpm -Uvh *.rpm

?

I didn't realize I'd installed the 32-bit.

When I visit the OO site, it automatically chooses the version to download.

Is that my issue? Do I need to specify a 32-bit build?

More to the point, if I want to *remove* the "previous" version, how do I go about that?

Thanks in advance.

I think:

# yum remove openoffice*

is supposed to do the trick.

I've tried a number of "yum" variants (remove, install, upgrade) with "openoffice*" as the argument. Invariably, I encounter "openoffice.org*" (in bold font) available but not installed"

When I do "yum list openoffice", I see a number of packages (modules?) but I can't remove any of those either.

Still stumped.

Can you not use yum extender (yumex) to check what's installed? Or are you trying to install OpenOffice headless at run level 3?

Or how about:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$ yum list > yumlist.txt
$ grep openoffice yumlist.txt

I was ultimately able to resolve this issue but I'm not sure of the specific action.

Normally, I leave my system in a "suspended" state and very infrequently "reboot", however, I had occasion to do that. After a reboot, I visited openoffice.org, saw there was a v3.4.1 available, downloaded and installed that without issue. Perhaps MY challenge was needing to reboot?

Thanks to all for your suggestions and support.
