Not talking about the repo version here, that one runs great. But for various reasons we NEVER use the repo-Version on any Linux distro in our company, mainly because we want all users to always have the exact same tools available no matter what computer they use, and the repo versions differ significantly from the stock openoffice.org version and from each other, not only visually. The stock 3.2.0 runs great on various versions of SuSE, openSUSE and CentOS on various computers, but fails to load on Fedora 13.

Here's what happens, with both 3.2.0 and 3.2.1: when I first start it I see the splash screen, then the "Welcome to OpenOffice.org" dailog that appears on first start and asks for my details. I click on next and the application segfaults:

martin/mlaptop$ soffice
/usr/bin/soffice: line 127: 11037 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$sd_prog/$sd_binary" "$@"

Any ideas? Using the repo version is not an option and company policy, so it's out.
