System: FreeBSD hsu.bbnetworks.net 4.11-STABLE FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE #19: Mon Apr 25 20:18:57 EEST 2005 hsu at hsu.bbnetworks.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/CAT i386

Openoffice from last sup two days ago, 1.1.4.


Openoffice has failed since upgrade to 1.1.4.  When starting, it opens
a window saying:

The application cannot be started.
The configuration service is not available.
Start the setup application to repair the installation from the CD or the folder containing the installation packages. 

Reinstalling does not seem to help.


This may be FreeBSD 4 specific as other comments on mailing lists
about this also refer FreeBSD 4.
