comment having trouble installing openoffice on Fedora 13
Let's go back to the start. Why do you want to install it this way? Why not just "yum search openoffice" then "yum install openoffice-exact-name-returned-by-search"?

Sorry, add a star after org, i.e. "rpm -ivh --aid openoffice.org*-{writer,calc,impress}*rpm".

Maybe try this: rpm -ivh --aid openoffice.org-{writer,calc,impress}*.

What about ls *freedesktop*? I am assuming you are still in the OpenOffice.org download directory where you ran the rpm -ivh command the first time.

Did you already install OpenOffice using Yum (or was it installed by default)? What does rpm -qa "openoffice.org*" say?

comment The 'which' command returns nothing via cron, but works via console
No. The problem is that cron overrides the user's PATH. env only helps if the program is in the PATH.
