Why don´t you use the RPMs provided by
RPMs for Fedora are ripped on certain functionality (IP isues). I am using the upstream RPMs for a while - and they work like a charm.
I don't understand.
I'm already using OpenOffice from (2.0.1 adn 2.0.2), but
everytime yum tell me that openoffice should be upgraded.
I agree on this one - this is the only drawback here.
This is why I ask about availability of OpenOffice 2.0.3 from fedora

But what apropos the issues (IP issues?!?!?!)
This has been discussed several times here and on many other places.
Even on bug-reports.
Short version: uses some code where redhat thinks that
this code might be a violation on some others IP - so they remove the
code (or parts of it). I have never seen or heard about a statement
where they explain in detail how and why they think it is that way. But
this is not a big problem - there are other RPMs out there

Since my google query voodoo didn't turn up anything, can you please
shed some light on which code or functionality has been removed from the
FC rpms compared to the ones form the website.

Thanks and regards,

In my case, I just installed the 2.0.3 from, and now yumex wants to downgrade it to 2.0.2. Thats not at all nice IMO.

Cheers, Gene
