Description Zenon Panoussis 2007-04-13 12:19:23 UTC
Description of problem:
rpmbuild --rebuild
   hsqldb >= is needed by
   perl-Archive-Zip is needed by

Neither build requirement is part of the distribution, so openoffice 
cannot be built on a pure rhel5 system.

Expected results:
hsqldb and perl-Archive-Zip should be part of the distro or, alternatively, should not depend on them.

Comment 1 Ludek Smid 2008-10-07 13:06:59 UTC
Client only package OpenOffice is not supported on PPC architecture. It is supported on i386 and x86_64 architectures only.

Contact Global Support Services if you need to escalate this request, please.
