I installed a clean RH 7.2 selecting all modules and got everything
working fine. After a few days I decided to install the StarOffice
5.2 CD that came in my Red Hat box.
The install was a bit flacky and semi-hung a few times. I rebooted
and started again avoiding problem areas (like browsing for directory
to install to). First problem then was that I can't find any icons to
run the program from - it said something about updating KDE menu but I
run Gnome, although since I installed KDE as well there is a KDE menu
but no StarOffice.
When I run StarOffice by browsing to find the executable it runs up ok
but after a while just hangs systems completely and I have to power
off. All other software runs fine.
Is there some incompatibility between RH 7.2 and StarOffice?
