I guess I didn't make my question quite clear. How would
I go about finding the name of the package? Oh, I see, you
mean ask rpm to find for me the package by providing
the file name. But I don't know the file name, either. I don't want
to delve into the guts of OOO. I just want to remove the
language pack.

And it appears to have worked. OOO is now 256M or so, rather than
1G or so, and appears still to run. Loads faster, too.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
