Thanks for your response.
I have used rpmforge to get other rpm's that are not available on the fedora core repositories. I just added it 2 or so days ago but haven't installed anything from it yet. I don't know if it's part of the problem or not.
This problem just started happening last night. I have updated all the other packages individually since "yum update" fails when the openoffice pkg is in the mix. There is an error somewhere in the "code". I would like to point that out and get my system operational... To help the cause as it were.
Are you suggesting a binary search on what/where the breakage is?

I don't what's causing the problem but having all the plugins ever
possible installed is just a bad idea. I would suggest remove
everything you don't need as a first step. I don't see why you have
rpmforge installed either.
