Just to be sure, do not allow YaST/zypper (or even smart) to update your
(32-bit) 11.1 installation of OpenOffice to the latest version - leave

We did not release an OpenOffice_org update via our regular update channels.

Have you added the openSUSE BS OpenOffice org repo?

Ciao, Marcus

Yes, I am sure he installed from the 11.1 STABLE repo, and I can confirm
the 3.0.1 packages there do not work, something that was a surprise to
me as well. I installed the x86_64 packages, but none would start up.
Looking at versions showed some packages still installed, which
when uninstalled it complained about the localization and not being able
to determine language (not good for US English). Reinstalling from the
DVD restored it without much problem.

So, you suffered the same fate :-( . Commiserations.
