4.1.6 Install Failure

Postby CaptainMidnight » Fri Mar 29, 2019 3:15 am

I am trying to install on CentOS 7 64-bit OpenOffice version 4.1.6.

I got the wrong Apache OpenOffice download file the first time - i586 instead of x86_64.

Had some errors and then saw the 64-bit was available. I uninstalled the i586 version and double checked and found no files nor rpm packages left installed.

Now when I try to install 4.1.6 ... x86_64 it fails with a number of lines, each listing subdirectory path and a file in non-existent directory - /opt/openoffice4/...
The message for each line is:

file /opt/openoffice4/subdir/filename conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice-en_US_base-4.1.6-9790.x86_64 and openoffice-en-US-base-4.1.6-9790.i586

(example subdir/filenames:
...program/unopkg.bin.bin conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice-en_US_base-4.1.6-9790.x86_64 and openoffice-en-US-base-4.1.6-9790.i586
...help/en/sdatabase.ht conflicts between attempted installs of openoffice-en_US_base-4.1.6-9790.x86_64 and openoffice-en-US-base-4.1.6-9790.i586

and many more, all under /opt/openoffice4 - which does not exist

I double checked for any files left from previous install and also references to openoffice in all files that were accessed during the attempted install of x86_64 version.

I found only one file referencing the openoffice software - plasma-desktop-appletsrc :
openoffice4-base=2019-03-17
openoffice4-calc=2019-03-17
openoffice4-writer=2019-03-17
8 lines total
...
Removed these lines. Still same error.

Any ideas?

Thank you!
