Default how do I get openoffice

Somehow I managed to install Fecora 13 without openoffice.

yum provides openoffice
reveals nothing.
yum provides "*openoffice*"
buries me in output.
I usually get the same effect whenever I want
to install a package whose name I do not know.

yum search openoffice
and install the bits you need.

Did you think about using 'search' instead of 'provides'?

Another useful tool: man yum

Or even, to get more compact output
$ yum list openoffice*

The simplest method is:

# yum install @office

That is because OOo is indeed many packages, and with the dependencies I
have no idea if its possible to install just one function. Generally, its
all or none, and will probably need the latest Sun/Oracle JRE kit too.

In gewneral the command wshould be:
yum provides */<prograqm name>

In this case ther is no program called openoffice. It is called:
openoffice.org
