I downloaded Sun's version and installed after removing openSuSE's version.
The Sun version works, but openSuSE's looks nicer. It is a bit of a pain to get it working.

I would have written a bug report but the bug report doesn't like my password/login name. I think it is due to a email change.

Do you have details about OOo bug? Why do you think SELinux
is the reason. Can you send a strace output? Is there a open
bugzilla entry for it already?

Thanks,
Thomas

Thanks for an explanation. This problem showed up after a recent
zypper up or dup. As a non root user (in this case) it caused OpenOffice
to not be allowed to write to my Document/donn/file. Which has always
worked up to M6. If it is ACL - As I remember during partition defining
there was a check box to turn off ACL. Should that be done to prevent
this from happening again? Besides I don't need it at all

Hello,

the dot is not a problem or failure.

http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/coreutils.html states:

"Following the file mode bits is a single character that specifies
whether an alternate access method such as an access control list
applies to the file. When the character following the file mode bits
is a space, there is no alternate access method. When it is a printing
character, then there is such a method.

GNU ls uses a ‘.’ character to indicate a file with an SELinux
security context, but no other alternate access method"

This happens on Fedora and openSUSE and every other distribution

that has SELinux (no matter if enabled or disabled).

Thanks to all that suggested a way to fix every directory and file

RWXRWXRWX"." dot ( this whole openSuSE 11.3 M6 system ).



I saw no suggests! So I beat it. It took some of my 15+ years playing

with UNIX and beat problems. But now, /home/donn/file or directory is

clear of the "." dot.
