In this case the first command was

Even in Fedora 4 I was problems (a lot of random crashes) with the
distributed version, so I removed and installed the official RPM by

After I removed all openoffice by yum remove and installed the 2.0.2
version I had the same behavior
An empty spreadsheet without grid.

So I removed the 2.0.2 version and I installed the 2.0.1 version, and
all works good.
I can see all my number and letter in the grid :-)

Is possible to recompile from the source to obtain a 64bit version or is
the code that is different?

2. There is a mailing list for OpenOffice.org in which I can discuss
about this behavior (I will search also by openoffice.org site and by

Tnx a lot

P.S. If you want to try my xls file ask to me in private.
