I tried 5.2, it does seem to like to hang on OpenBSD.
Then I installed a StarOffice 5.1a rpm. It installed and runs
without a hitch.
# rpm --ignorearch --ignoreos --nodep -i StarOffice51a_en.i586.rpm
Be aware that it wants to install a couple hundred meg into /opt.
I have this in /etc/rc.local as well:
if [ -d /proc ]; then
mount_procfs -o linux /proc /proc
echo 'mounted /proc'
