you're running out of space on /var, and an openoffice package install 
takes up a lot in /var/tmp. what you can do, since you seem to have gigs 
available in /usr, is to mv /var/tmp to /usr and create a link from 
/var/tmp to /usr/tmp and try again. 256MB for a /var partition these days 
is small, and i normally use >1GB on it if disk space isnt a problem.
