Good news, everybody! One of the most annoying bugs from openSUSE 11.1 beta 4 has a fix. A problem starting OpenOffice.org was found too late to fix for the beta, but we do have a fix now – so you can update your system and have a working install of OpenOffice.org:
After installing 11.1 beta 4, open a terminal and run:
sudo zypper refresh sudo zypper lu
You should see something like this:
Loading repository data… Reading installed packages… S | Repository | Name | Version | Arch –+——————+————————–+———–+——- v | Updates for 11.1 | OpenOffice_org-kde | 126.96.36.199-2 | x86_64 v | Updates for 11.1 | OpenOffice_org-libs-core | 188.8.131.52-2 | x86_64 v | Updates for 11.1 | gdm | 2.24.0-4 | x86_64
Go ahead and run the update command:
sudo zypper up
and say yes when it asks if you want to continue.
Note that, if you prefer the GUI method, you should also be able to do this by going to YaST and using the Software Update module. Reports of bugs or problems with this, if any, would be appreciated.
