1. First thing to do is remove the following file manually from your home dir
<. sversionrc > file notice the (.) and no < > of course..:)
2. Next if you installed it correctly remove the OpenOffice.org1.0.X directory
in your home directory.
3. Finally depending on where you installed OOo.org in /usr/local/ or /opt
which is preferred (me thinks LSB compliant also but not really sure on that
one) remove the complete /OpenOffice.org1.0.X directory
4. Thats all there is.
You can of course use the uninstall script but me thinks you never installed
it correctly so this will probably not work.
Finally to reinstall
# tar zxvf OpenOffice.org1.0.X.tar.gz (typically in user account)
#sux (or whatever)
#./setup /net <--------use the net switch
when prompted where to install pick your favorite place
#exit upon completion
Then as you
user# cd /to where OOo.org lives/
user# ./setup <----no switch this time
Now when prompted indicate a workstation install and make sure that you have
JVM installed ie: 1.3.1 or greater to get the full function of OOo.org
Thats about it. Best of luck
