currently have abiword 2.0.12 on FC3.
I tried a yum update.  No luck.
So I got the rpms. for 2.2.1-1
I get an error Unlocatable package
Where/how do I get these?

[[email protected] ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides
no package provides
[[email protected] ~]$ rpm -q abiword

Not sure how to help you.
I'm using the AbiWord from Rawhide, not from AbiSource.
I rebuilt it in fc3 (rpmbuild --rebuild src.rpm) to make sure the dependencies were fc3 met, and not rawhide.

If you want to try it -

Thanks.. this rpm. worked like a charm. Why do you think that with Abiword coming on the install disks it is not listed in the yum updates?

Also.. my I ask a OT questions...... As a 'light user' of a word and excel types of programs... I personaly found OO too much .... hard to explain exactly what I mean...
So I tried gnomeric and abiword... I do notice and abi word cannot handle some of my old word templetes and OO writer can.
Why do you use... abiword or gnumeric v OO.... Just wondering... basicly.. trying to figure out .. (as a new linux convert) which Office product I am going to invest in learning aobut.
