Seriously, if you are going to use packages from the build service,
letting the packager know about problems - instead of just reinstalling
the old version and complaining on mailing lists - gives you a far
better chance of making things work

Where to find name of packager as normal user?
I think that is known, but still not solved problem.

I want to thank everyone on this thread, between your comments I was
finally able to get OpenOffice 3.0.1.2 installed and working:

I ran into this this morning. I'm KDE 4.1.3, openSUSE 11.1..

 1. when the dependecnces came up I said go ahead and make the
changes and do the update (YaST2).

 2. It then installed 3.0.1.2 OK. When I tried starting the application it
kept telling me it could not start it. I went back into YaST and deleted all
references to the old version of OpenOffice (some were still installed). Still
would not start. I went back in an reinstalled the language package (was
mentioned in one of the items in this thread). Now OpenOffice starts and
both writer and spreadsheet appear
to read and modify my old documents. Here's  list of rpms installed:

rpm -qa |grep OpenOffice
OpenOffice_org-templates-labels-letter-1.0-5.1
