lets see if it happens on any new upgrades.
right now what is the output of
rpm -qf /usr/lib/
do you happen to run openoffice as root, or just as normal user ?

Comment 2 John Thacker 2005-04-13 12:55:57 UTC
Hmm.  Seems like it's ok with 1.9.92; after I removed it, the files were all
gone.  rpm -qf /usr/lib/ doesn't show any unowned files. 
So I'll close this.  Never run it as root, BTW.

Comment 3 John Thacker 2005-04-23 16:24:17 UTC
Well, I upgraded to and this problem is back.  The
/usr/lib/ directory stuck around, albeit empty.

I've never run openoffice as root, just as a normal user.

Comment 4 John Thacker 2005-04-28 15:57:30 UTC
Occurred again upgrading to 1.9.96

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-14 15:01:43 UTC
I'll stabilize on a single openoffice.org2.0 directory

Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-28 11:50:21 UTC
as of 1.9.112 its always /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0
