    Open Office on MacBook Pro
    Hey all, sorry if this is repost of any kind... I searched but couldn't find anything specific.

    I am trying to Open Office on my MBP... I tried the regular version which Rosetta would run, and also some "non-official" Universal Binary versions. All of 'em run the program, but then it closes within 10 seconds of being run.

    Any ideas or thoughts or known issues? I'm waiting for NeoOffice in the meantime.

    Thanks all!

    did you load x11? it's part of the optional installs on the osx disc. openoffice.org has instructions if you haven't done it.

    Is X11 something that comes on the installation CDs? If so I totally missed this. Either way, I'll read about it when I get home, thanks!
