Bug#516084: Bug#516090: openoffice.org: Openoffice fails to launch
severity 516090 serious
retitle 516090 dependencies allow mixture of 2.4.1 arch-dep with 3.0.1 arch-indep which fails to start
reassign 516090 openoffice.org
severity 516084 serious
forcemerge 516090 516084
> Package: openoffice.org-core
> Version: 1:2.4.1-17+b1
Wrong. If at all, the bug is in the 3.0.1 packages.
> File: openoffice.org
Wrong. Is there some "openoffice.org" file in the openoffice.org-core package? No.
> Severity: grave
> Justification: renders package unusable
> Launching openoffice gives the following error :

You have a mixture between 3.0.1 and 2.4.1.
You run the soffice script from 3.0.1 (in the arch-indep part you already have at 3.0.1) on 2.4.1 arch-dep

And as 3.0.1 is not yet uploaded for i386.... (I uploaded amd64)
This is the same as #516084 (that one even is filed worse). I'll merge both.
But as already said in #516084, too, such "arch-indep there before the matching arch-dep stuff is there"
problems do happen in sid - that this is a real major upgrade here doesn't make this easier.
There be might be is some dependency not correct as the packages should not allow the 2.4/3.0 mixture,
But this is not a "grave functionality bug", sorry.
