OSX 10.5.5 Update Breaks OpenOffice 2.4

Gee, thanks Apple.  No, I didn’t need OpenOffice this morning.  Nah, it’s cool, I only had a printer fail and had to come to Kinko’s, which is my favorite place to get surprises – surprises like OpenOffice 2.4 failing to, well, open.

“Command timed out” says OpenOffice on boot while it reaches for X11 – a windowing system which apparently you just had to delete with your 10.5.5 update.

No, really, it’s okay.  The Kinko’s LapNet I’m on will only take 45 more minutes to download OpenOffice 3.  I haven’t been on dialup in a long time, it’s fun! And not only that, it’s six bucks an hour.

I mean, I have all kinds of time for stuff like this, no sweat.
