Launching OpenOffice under Red Hat Enterprise Linux

20 October 2008

I notice that a number of people have found their ways to this 'blog because they've installed OpenOffice under RHEL, but OpenOffice doesn't seem to launch.

This is probably an SELinux issue. If so, then it should be resolved either if one goes to the directory containing and (as root) runs

chcon -t textrel_shlib_t
to get SELinux to accept the interface, or if one up-dates to OpenOffice 3.0.0.
