I installed OpenOffice using the installer downloaded from openoffice.org on Fedora 14. I went to use it today for the first time and it won't open. I'm assuming with updates that have been installing that perhaps something got overwritten or something since I didn't install it through yum. I wasn't sure how to go about uninstalling it now so that I can reinstall it using yum so that it can monitor dependencies for me. How would I do this?
From the FAQ (url has been moved):
OpenOffice.org version 1 (old)
On Windows, you can use the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. On Linux, you can use ./setup and choose the Remove option.
OpenOffice.org version 2 & 3 (current)
If you installed OpenOffice.org through another method (an RPM, or a Debian package), using the appropriate package removal tool is best.
No "Linux" in the text that mentions version 2 & 3, anyway check if the
./setup file is still there and if there is a "Remove" option.
Another way is, I think inside the archive the packages are really just RPMs. If so you can use rpm to remove them.
