If you build the 1.9.X series under fedora and use the default upstream packaging, the resulting rpms will have a problem where rpm reports cpio: MD5 sum mismatch on installing the copy of libgcc_s.so.1 that OOo2 makes during its build. To work around after creating the rpms use –no-md5 on rpm’s –install. To work around before creating the rpms try commenting out the __prelink_undo_cmd line in /etc/rpm/macros.prelink. rh#149465#. A simple testcase.
