1.92 is FedoroCore2 Test3 snapshot (FC2T3).

You'll need plenty of disk space - and more than a few hours time (OO
is pretty big). Some instructions are at: (more than what I would do)


Quick summary:

## Create a build setup in your home dir.
cd ~
cp -a /usr/src/redhat/ rpmbuild
echo '%_topdir %(echo $HOME)/rpmbuild' >> .rpmmacros
echo '%debug_package %{nil}' >> .rpmmacros

## Download the src rpm, and try building:
wget ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/development/SRPMS/openoffice.org-1.1.1-4.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild openoffice.org-1.1.1-4.src.rpm

## You'll mostlikely get 'errors of required packages. Install them (as root and retry)
sudo yum install packages
rpmbuild --rebuild openoffice.org-1.1.1-4.src.rpm


## One of the dependent packages is not part of FC1 - so I would
## rebuild this from src.rpm from rawhide as well - and install it
## (before trying to rebuild openoffice.org-1.1.1-4.src.rpm)

wget ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/development/SRPMS/libgnomecups-0.1.6-7.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild libgnomecups-0.1.6-7.src.rpm
cd ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i386
sudo rpm -Uvh libgnomecups-0.1.6-7.i386.rpm libgnomecups-devel-0.1.6-7.i386.rpm

Whenever you get errors on missing (devel) package - keep installing
them using yum (as root).
