Not that I'm recommending this, but it looks like the OP is trying to
install new OpenOffice.org from the Rawhide (pre-F10) repository on a
non-Rawhide or F10 test box.

You can probably accomplish this like so:

$ su -c 'yum --enablerepo=rawhide localinstall

I'm pretty sure that will drag in a *ton* of other packages, and it
might have some other deleterious side effects.

If you want OpenOffice.org 3.0, why not either download the latest F10
snapshot or wait for the Preview Release on Tuesday?  That way if you
have a problem you could report them in Bugzilla.  If you end up with
a half-F9, half-F10 box it might be hard for others to duplicate your
bug's behavior or help fix it.
