Have you had any success getting openoffice working? I have a similar problem with xorg 7.4 and Upon attempting to run openoffice, I get:

I get no errors, feedback, or dumped cores to let me know what went wrong, but it doesn't launch. If anyone has any info or things to attempt, I'd be glad to hear it.

        This is a known item.  It appeared with xorg-7.4 because
certain functionality has been added to the Xorg libraries but not
(yet) to the server.
        In all other cases where this has appeared, it has been

Thanks for the info. I ended up deinstalling the openoffice-3-RC and went with openoffice-3 and now it runs without problem. I'm not sure why the release candidate didn't work, but from my perspective, that's a problem for another day.
