itiwks-> rpm -Uvih *rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        openoffice.org3 is needed by (installed) openoffice.org3-en-US-3.3.0-9567.i586
        ooobasis3.3-core01 is needed by (installed) ooobasis3.3-en-US-3.3.0-9567.i586


Can anyone help please?

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

It looks to me like you have some packages from the Fedora build of OO still installed. I would try removing those and then try again with the Apache packages.

It's not trivial to find all the installed OOo packages; I've used something like this:

rpm -qa | egrep -i '^(openoffice|ooo)'

I seem to remember that there were OOo package names that wouldn't match but I don't remember the details. You may have to investigate on your own.

OK, that command found a lot! The following ksh script allowed me to remove all instances found:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
for line in $(rpm -qa | egrep -i '^(openoffice|ooo)'); do
  rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps $line
done


Everything seems to be working now, I used the Redhat desktop integration rpm.

Thanks a lot!
